Can't remove gnome install.

I am running Kubuntu Gutsy and a while back I thought I'd install the
ubuntu-desktop package to have a little look at how gnome was doing since the
two years that I last ran the system.
I did a:
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
and it happily installed the gnome option in the login manager.
Anyway, after a few days, I don't really want it sitting there on my system,
so I did:
sudo apt-get remove ubuntu-desktop.
Of course, this only removes the meta-package, but I was expecting all the
things which this package pulled in to then be removed by:
sudo apt-get autoremove
since they're no longer required by the packages I'd requested to be
installed, but this didn't happen.
Can anyone explain why (since I seem to be misunderstanding the concept of
autoremove), and what I should do to remove all the gnome stuff?
Thanks in advance!
