copy these back from the .rpmorig versions after.

The files are marked as %config in the spec file. Perhaps what you're seeing is that they 
are intentionally not marked as %config(noreplace) .

I am closing this with the resolution of "NOTABUG".

Ok. Rephrase. It causes us (University of York) annoyance that
they are not marked as "noreplace".
