Deconvolve your functions

For some reason, people like to say "deconvolute" instead of "deconvolve" in the context of Fourier analysis. Deconvolute sounds awful, like you're made the problem worse and now you're trying to go back and fix it. Sam Lord discusses the deconvolute vs deconvolve debate in this post. Any comments, linguists?
