#1466: Uninstall in Windows does not remove some directories

     Type:  defect             |      Status:  new   
 Priority:  normal             |   Milestone:        
Component:  Official binaries  |     Version:  1.4.0 
 Keywords:                     |  
 After uninstalling 1.4.0 (numpy-1.4.0-win32-superpack-python2.6.exe), the
 following directory remains:

 The first time I tried uninstalling it, a dialog popped up with counts of
 files and directories removed, but said that one file/directory was not
 removed.  It gave no indication which.

 I moved away the aforementioned directory, reinstalled 1.4.0, and
 uninstalled again. This time, it did not report that any files/directories
 could not be removed, but /dev/Python26/Lib/site-packages/numpy.

 I believe it is a bug that this directory is not removed at uninstall.
 This is seen on Windows 7.
