Oh really? Even those, who observed the issue were *not* able to
reproduce it! Why do you change bug tags, when you even did not read the
whole report?!

> You seem to tag it unreproducible to not have to solve it

WTF are you trying to say?! I spent several days trying to reproduce it!
I again repeat it: Even people who observed the issue were not able to
reproduce it! Downgrading and again upgrading worked perfectly! And
everything which is now attached to this report is: "Oh yes, I also had
this." Yeah, this is the information I need.

Two entities are not removed. But the maintainer scripts *remove* them.
So there must be a reason, why these two entities are not removed and I
cannot reproduce this behaviour. I think, that the Perl upgrade maybe
leave the system in a broken state, so the removal command fails. But I
cannot reproduce it and I tried several upgrade orders! Another
possibility is, that the package was shipped wih a CD and was broken on
this CD. But reporters told me, that the maintainer scripts on their
system were ok. However, re-installing the package also seems to solve
the problem.

And now you better shut up and try to reproduce it yourself instead
trying to teach me about things, I already examined! I gave you a lot of
information, which all did not help me to reproduce it. If you think, I
try to *not* solve it: Well show me, how bad I maintain the package!

I spent hours over hours and the tags meaning is: "This bug can't be
reproduced on the maintainer's system. Assistance from third parties is
needed in diagnosing the cause of the problem." This is exactly, what
I'm looking for!

Find a way to reproduce it and then I will remove this tag. And now stop
your insulting behaviour!
