gnome-pilot 0.1.63 fixes serious data corruption bug

gnome-pilot 0.1.62 had a serious bug in the backup/file conduit code which
caused the synched Palm device to crash hard, requiring a hard reset and
therefore a loss of data on the device, under two circumstances:

1. While installing a new file
2. While restoring backed-up files

This has been fixed in 0.1.63-1, now in incoming. It is recommended that all
gnome-pilot users upgrade as soon as possible. Upstream also recommends that
you delete all prior backups; they can be found in the backup/ directory of
your Palm's directory, as configured in the druid. Simply removing the
backup/ directory is sufficient.
