More: [1.7] packaging problem? Both /usr/bin/ and /usr/lib/ are non-empty

And again: following the recent upgrade to rxvt-unicode there are now 3 
"real" files in /usr/lib/ being

C:\>attrib m:\usr\bin\*
A  S         M:\usr\bin\urxvt
A  S         M:\usr\bin\urxvtc
A  S         M:\usr\bin\urxvtd

(As you perceive, these are all links: in fact to files of the same name 
in /etc/alternatives/. There are identical links in m:\bin\.)

No such problems arise from the recent upgrade to rxvt-unicode in [1.5].
