Unfortunately not in my case anyway - I tried every way to
get it to delete or uninstall, including using the --force-all
option. Along the way it came up with some bizarre warnings.
Aptitude at one point told me it was going to remove unrelated packages
such as wbarconf, and would install Iceape along with a bunch of
others. I told it to go ahead to see if that might help...but then
it complained about the half installed package. It seemed like there
was no way around the problem. Maybe dpkg needs a "JustDoIt" option :)
