Thanks for the feedback so far. Looking at the above comment, I want to 
stress, that there might be a bit of confusion what we are talking about here.

There is for one the automatic backup procedure to keep the last n versions of 
the file in the same directory as in


where the number of those files can be controlled via the settings dialog. 
That is *not* what I am talking about. I am happy to have that feature.

The other feature - and that is what I want to get rid of - is what you can 
access via 'File/Backup...'. It opens a dialog and allows to mount an external 
device such as a floppy (or nowadays USB stick) and to physically copy the 
current file to that device.

I think the mounting operation is what causes the trouble on MS Windows.

p.s. I intended to ask on the user list in a second round as well. Maybe even 
on the forum but wanted to get the developers opinion first.
