Thanks for submitting this enhancement, assigning to flagedit maintainer who also is the upstream flagedit developer :) For future patch submissions, please note the "create a new attachment" link in the little table -- that is where proposed patches are meant to go.

I dont really know enough perl to fix this, but the solution would be no to create the .old backups if the *.package structure is found, or store them at another place that is not sourced by eix/portage. best regards

New version flagedit-0.0.8 should implement that feature. Let me know of any bug.
