Package: dpkg
Version: 1.10.28
Severity: normal

I was told that "dpkg --purge foo" should be able to purge the
remaining configurationsfiles etc from the (removed, uninstalled but
nor purged) package foo. It does not do that, so is it a bug, or is it
no supposed to work?

  # dpkg -l | grep ^rc.*cupsy
  rc  libcupsys2     1.1.20final+cv Common UNIX Printing System(tm) - libs
  # dpkg --purge libcupcsys2
  dpkg - warning: ignoring request to remove libcupcsys2 which isn't installed.
  # dpkg -l | grep ^rc.*cupsy
  rc  libcupsys2     1.1.20final+cv Common UNIX Printing System(tm) - libs

I must say that the man page really does not hint about it. But I read
it somewhere, and judging from the remaining stuff /var/lib/dpkg/foo.*
it should be possible. I would be happy if it worked!

It's supposed to work, and indeed does if you don't typo the package
name <g>

Have you ever, ever felt like this?
Had strange things happen?  Are you going round the twist?
