I talked to the upstream people, and this is not an actual bug. The index.theme~
files were meant to be installed, so that you can enable these themes easily (by
renaming the file). But they are not enabled by default in order to not clutter
up the theme dialog with lots of a11y themes.

Pretty bizzare way of doing this, but its intended....

Oh, I thought this happened in the packaging!

I find it confusing, and it breaks cleanup of backup files ending in ~, so I
filed a RFE: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=121778  We'll see what
they reply.
