OK, couple of things here.

* etc/profile IS backed up in the filesystem package. profile.bash was
not, so thanks for that.
I think we may have hit a pacman issue here - there is special
handling to handle the case of a file changing hands (profile moved
from bash to filesystem), but i think this may collide with the backup
lemme see if I can throw a pactest at this.

* I will rebuild filesystem containing a fix for fs#6350 later, and
additionally rebuild bash for patch level 033 (up from 025 - their
servers were down for a bit, I had to scp patch sources around to

Any other issues to fix while I'm at it?

Dan, could you weigh in on the profile thing? If this is a pacman
issue, what do we do?
