And even once I did that, I got:

Purging configuration files for ippl ...
Removing system user
Looking for files to backup/remove ...
Not backing up/removing `/var/run/ippl', it matches ^/var/.*.
Removing user `Debian-ippl' ...

This left /var/run/ippl/ippl.conf intact, which shouldn't be the case.

I'm thinking 'userdel -r ippl' would have been more appropriate, so the
postrm script is more at fault here.

     2. That which causes joy or happiness.
