That is my impression as well :)

OK, perhaps you should use grep -i myth, as there is "perl-MythTV" as
well, but I don't think that should be you problem. Or if it is, you
now know how to deal with it :)

What is not being removed?

When you use rpm -e on a package it only leaved edited config files
behind, but it even renames them so that they don't interfere.

Reading through the thread again it looked like your problem was that
the packages removed "too much", e.g. parts of init scripts that you
wanted to keep around. That's the opposite problem of what you
describe. If you need to keep the initscripts, then just copy them
into a safe place before removing the packages.
