>>> Unmerging dev-lang/python-2.6.5-r3...
/usr/lib64/portage/bin/ line 1818: /usr/bin/python2.6: No such file or directory
 * ERROR: dev-lang/python-2.6.5-r3 failed (postrm phase):
 * failed
 * Call stack:
 *, line 1950:  Called preprocess_ebuild_env

 * The ebuild phase 'postrm' has exited unexpectedly. This type of behavior
 * is known to be triggered by things such as failed variable assignments
 * (bug #190128) or bad substitution errors (bug #200313). Normally, before
 * exiting, bash should have displayed an error message above. If bash did
 * not produce an error message above, it's possible that the ebuild has
 * called `exit` when it should have called `die` instead. This behavior
 * may also be triggered by a corrupt bash binary or a hardware problem
 * such as memory or cpu malfunction. If the problem is not reproducible or
 * it appears to occur randomly, then it is likely to be triggered by a
 * hardware problem. If you suspect a hardware problem then you should try
 * some basic hardware diagnostics such as memtest. Please do not report
 * this as a bug unless it is consistently reproducible and you are sure
 * that your bash binary and hardware are functioning properly.

In >=portage- there is unmerge prevention, but we really need to fix depclean to protect python's dependencies too.
