Moin Ulf!

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.
