I don't find that very radical at all.  The backup_label file is
*supposed* to be removed on the master if it crashes during the
backup; and it should never be removed from the backup itself.  At
least that's how I understand it.  Unfortunately, people too often
remove the file from the backup and, judging by your report, leave it
there on the master.

(We could try to fix this confusion - and thereby confuse all the
people who understand it now - by changing things so that you have to
leave the file there on the master, and remove it from the backup.
