Exacto :)

Personally when I do the upgrades, i take care about what is upgraded.
And after upgrade i have an alias to view what is needed to reload.

alias lsof-deletes='lsof -n | grep -e "deleted" -e "DEL" | grep -v -e "
/dev/" -e " /SYSV" -e " /var/tmp/" -e " /tmp/"'

sometimes (for example glibc) I prefer to do "pacman -Sywu; init 1" then
login killall syslog-ng udevd; pacman -Su
start udevd and go againt to init 3.

My two cents.

PS: The original topic was for user handling. So maybe i will post the
fixes for each package that "shows fails" on remove.
