Package: thunar-data
Severity: normal


I just purged thunar-data and got the following error:

Purging configuration files for thunar-data ...
dpkg: warning: while removing thunar-data, directory '/usr/share/doc/thunar-data' not empty so not removed.

Inspeciting the problem I see:

mrvn at frosties:~% ls -lh /usr/share/doc/thunar-data
total 0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 11 Jan  6  2009 thunar-data -> thunar-data

I find it highly doubtfull that that link is ment to be in the first
