help: pythonpackage: gconf-schemas --unregister does not delete everything

I am trying to add gconf schemas to the python package named onboard.
The package uses cdbs and The call to gh_gconf in
debian/rules generates the corresponding gconf-schemas --register and
gconf-schemas --unregister calls in the postinst and prerm scripts.

After building the debian package in the pbuilder environment, the
installation of the bin package registers the schemas; uninstalling the
package unregisters the keys, but not completely: the keys are all
deleted, but the /apps/onboard and the /schemas/apps/onboard entries
remain listed in the gconf database (at least they continue to show up
in the gconf editor).

Could anybody please tell me what is going on or how to make also the
two remaining entries disappear?

You can have a look at the debian/rules file and at the gconf schemas
file in the following thread:

Many thanks in advance for any help.
