To WHOM it may concern.. a grave problem with this package (I did not do ANY tinkering, just basic add/removes) as it doesn't want to remove!

I can't figure out HOW to remove it!? (aside from a system reinstall) can't force a reinstall then remove or any of the common tricks. I can brute force remove files and try to purge the apt database, but a reinstall would be safer.

I am guessing others will have this problem (as I didn't do anything other than standard repository adds/removes).
