Bug#809356: gnome-themes-standard-data: left over legacy files

Package: gnome-themes-standard-data
Version: 3.18.0-2
Severity: normal


During upgrade to -2:
Unpacking gnome-themes-standard-data (3.18.0-2) over (3.18.0-1) ...
dpkg: warning: unable to delete old directory '/usr/share/icons/default': Directory not empty

That directory contains:
ls -al /usr/share/icons/default
total 4
drwxr-xr-x 1 root root  22 Jul 18  2008 .
drwxr-xr-x 1 root root 326 Nov 26 18:03 ..
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root  32 Nov 14  2009 index.theme -> /etc/alternatives/x-cursor-theme

which was hoever not created by myself, so I guess gnome-themes-standard-data would
need to clean that up and then properly remove the dir.

Could you please repeat that in one of the upcomming uploads so that users
don't have stale files which never again get removed?
