I had a look at the source code and just added a "-f" to the rm,
but this cannot be the culprit since it was enclosed by a
if [ -d ... ] test for the same directory.
Hm. I would prefer to wait for a another report on this issue
before investigating this further, preferably one without the
mandb crash. I just don't have any idea on what could
have gone wrong. Is /var/lib/boinc-client existing on your
Pre-removal script should not abort with missing boinc data directory (exit status 6)
