Re: debconf making package removal fail because of warnings issues by an earlier called program (in postrm)

Programs/scripts that have to be able to run under debconf are not allowed

If this is what's going on it's an RC bug in the relevant package. 
Possibly it can be worked around by redirecting its output at the call 

But then again, I may have misunderstood this completely...
