Only recently, I saw these two files pop up in my home directory. I tried to remove them, but they pop up again and again. Even after I removed them, the whole system seems to be working fine.

I think they started to pop up after I emerged some new packages, but I do not remember which package.

Perhaps he has installed some package that is trying to bundle those libraries. Remounting the home directory as noexec might break the culprit enough to produce an interesting error message. He could also try replacing those files with stubs that his user cannot overwrite.

After much test, I guess the bad guy is net-p2p/vuze-5.7.2.0-r1.

Do you guys think it is a bug, or just a bad practice?

Well, on my machine, these files are created right after I launch the Vuze client.

Interestingly, I changed the owner of them to root and the mode to 600. The Vuze client still can work without any problem.
