This is wrong, if you use dhelp directly. As the .dhelp is a static file
created during the build of the package, dpkg will remove it.

Yeah, against your own package :)? Maybe you have forgotten to tell doc-
base (if you use doc-base) in prerm to "check out" your package? The
problem with doc-base is that it creates the .dhelp file dynamically
during the installation process of a package.
