That's clever, I never thought about that.  I see two ways to do this.

One, check if files exist in paco.tmp before generating the log:

for FILE in $(</tmp/paco.tmp); do
    [ -e $FILE ] || sed -i "/^$FILE\$/d" /tmp/paco.tmp

The ^ and \$ mark the beginning and end of the line.  I don't remember
if there are any other characters in the temp file, but I think it's
just file names.

Or, after the log is created, assuming you know, e.g., the name of the
log NAME=coreutils-5.94:

sed -i '/^-/d' /var/log/paco/$NAME
