This is plain normal when your installation folder has a partition with data in it.
When you install ADS and start it partitions are created. The -e option to RPM to
remove the installation removes everything except the partitions in the var/partition
directory. Can you check to see if this is the case?
Just noticed that when I do
rpm -e apacheds
all the files are left on the system.
Originally I thought
that RPM would figure out how
to back out the installed files,
since it installed them, but
maybe a POSTUN script needs to be
run to remove the files.
I'll look into it more - just posting for awareness.
