Description Ron 2003-07-19 15:21:06 UTC
When rebuilding mysql-python (required after an upgrade of mysql to V4) I found
portage removing gimp-print - see emerge.log below. 

I am using portage-2.0.48-r1

Changing AUTOCLEAN="yes" to AUTOCLEAN="no" in make.conf stops this from happening.

As I managed to kill the process before it had finished, portage still thinks
that I have gimp-print installed (which I still partly do). By settng AUTOCLEAN
back to yes and re-merging mysql-python I can reproduce this at any time.

Should you require any more information, I will be happy to provide all I can.

emerge info -v

attach your world file /var/cache/edb/world

ls -lR /var/db/pkg > pkg.db.lslR

You can email those to me if you don't wish to post them.
