<filesmatch> condition evaluates to true when both files cannot be found

I personnally think it's a mistake, and often time comparing two non-existent 
files is simply a mistake, as it was for me. But I guess I'm not surprised I'm 
the only one who thinks different. So now I have experience with <filesmatch>, 
and I'll simply leave the next guy fall into the same trap I did, but at least 
s/he will have the benefit of some doc to explain the counter-intuitive 
behavior that goes against the principle of least surprise.

Thanks Stefan, and nevermid. --DD
