not "/.missing" but "/missing.xml"

i'm not shure about ownership. i just added a "if [ -e /missing.xml] ;
then ; rm /missing.xml ; fi" to my script as it does not happen always.
as i coudln't track down the reason within 10 minutes, i just remove the
file (and had no side effects yet)

i can't recall when this file occured first, but it's older than 2.7.3
