I'm not to sure about this, but I think this is normal on upgrades as the
old packages run their postrm scripts, they use the old install-mime to
remove themselves from the mime-support, while the new packages run
update-mime on postinst to install themselves in mime-support.

Could be wrong, but that's what it sounds like to me.
