Actually, now that I think about it, this "problem" may be related to 
0x00 problem.  The only packages I noticed this on were local updates of 
the auto-* and libtool* packages that I was testing.

But I had been installing these updates using setup-snapshots.  So all 
of my .lst file had 0x00 -- and then when I tried to upgrade, the 
uninstall didn't work exactly right...

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
