UPS will read temporary files left by common text editors in version and chain directories
I've tripped over this several times while making a product "current" manually...I change the version that the files in current.chain (which I copied from a .version folder initially) and discover that when I set up the product, it still sets up the old version. What happens is that UPS will read the files in the directory, and the ~ files left by my text editor get read and matched to the qualifiers before the edited file, and the wrong version gets set up. I've tested and confirmed that this will happen for both the current.chain and .version directories.

Since this is a pretty easy fix, I went ahead and just did it in r2868.
Should be in there next time we cut a release.
