So unless you "mess with a lot of experimental code" (;)), things should "just work" most of the time.

The "Remove aux files..." is not the best choice as a name because it does not help a lot beginners that need to clean aux files.
When one of the aux file is corrupted (when changing the babel language option for example),
the log file is not really helpful and never suggests to remove the aux files.
I would be in favour of a "Clean" or eventually a "Reset" action which suggests that it may also solve a problem.
"Clean aux files..." ?
