Looks like that log gets deleted after uninstallation (as it probably should), so I still could not figure out which file/directory was not deleted.  I found that \Python26\Lib\site-packages\numpy and many files/directories under it have remained after uninstall.  So, I tried reinstalling 1.4.0 and uninstalling again.  This time, the uninstaller did not report not being able to remove files/directories, but it still did not delete the aforementioned numpy directory.  I believe this is a bug with the uninstaller?

I have most everything closed, so I don't believe there could be any sort of sharing violations.
