Default Only two people in the gentoo world is having this problem?

While ago I reported a bug regarding gvfs:
https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=302196

It's been unresolved for quite a long time now, so I was wondering if
somebody could give me a hint on how to solve this problem.

Best,
Damian.

It probably means you have run fix_libtool_files.sh, or possibly
lafilefixer, between installing and removing the package responsible for
that file. Emerge won't remove files it installed if they have been
subsequently modified.

I've been using Gentoo since 2003 and AFAIK it's been like that all this
time.

Isn't it a bit unnerving that doctors call what they do "practice?"

Do they warn about it? There are other circumstances where files are
deliberately not removed. I just updated my netbook after 6 weeks, and
the media-libs/jpeg-8 ebuild put this in my /var/log/portage/elog (note;
configuration in /etc/make.conf required)

================================================== ==================
WARN: postinst
Old versions of installed libraries were detected on your system.
In order to avoid breaking packages that depend on these old libs,
the libraries are not being removed. You need to run revdep-rebuild
in order to remove these old dependencies. If you do not have this
helper program, simply emerge the 'gentoolkit' package.

# revdep-rebuild --library libjpeg.so.7

Once you've finished running revdep-rebuild, it should be safe to
delete the old libraries. Here is a copy & paste for the lazy:
# rm '/usr/lib/libjpeg.so.7'
================================================== ==================

No, it's a simple rule: if portage didn't put the file there, portage
won't remove it. It is also a sensible rule (IMO) but it can lead to .la
files being orphaned (which is more a problem with the whole .la thing).
I'd rather that than have portage delete my customisations.
