[arch-dev-public] Strange behaviour of pacman

I'm having some trouble to understand why pacman left some files on the
filesystem, but the package was removed. According to this bug report:
http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/16414 pacman left the listed directories
and files on the filesystem. I have try to reproduce it and it's true,
the files are on the filesystem. My first thought was about the
'emptydirs' option in the PKGBUILD
but that wasn't the solution, the files are still there.

I can't determine why this happens, any ideas from your side?
