dpkg -r --force-all doesnt work HELP

Hello everyone,

got myself (SID) into a nasty problem in that I cannot remove xfonts-scalable,
no matter how hard I hit (dpkg force etc)
Removing xfonts-scalable ...
dpkg - warning: while removing xfonts-scalable, directory 
`/etc/X11/fonts/Speedo' not empty so not removed.
Running update-fonts-scale in Speedo font directory...done.
Running update-fonts-dir in Speedo font directory...done.
Running xftcache in Speedo font directory...Can't scan directory 
dpkg: error processing xfonts-scalable (--remove):
 subprocess post-removal script returned error exit status 1

any idea what I could do?

No other upgrade can be done unless that remove goes through
