[wpkg-users] Little problem

I've run (again) into a little problem which is actually a major problem.

I've installed 28 packages on a machine in one go, no problem so far. Then I removed all those packages from the profile again and after a reboot WPKG tried to uninstall all the installed software, no problem so far.
But one of the packages seems to have initiated an immediate reboot and WPKG didn't have a chance to write the local XML file. After this reboot WPKG is trying to reinstall all packages for some reason before it again tries to uninstall all of them. Then the immediate reboot from one of the packages is triggered and WPKG has no chance to write the local XML file again. And the fun begins again... There's no way to escape this circle of death.

Here's a little part of the log:

2008-01-15 13:47:05, DEBUG  : Finding version of C:\Programme\Notepad++\notepad++.exe|

Is there any switch I missed that would fix this? Or is it actually a bug? Wouldn't it be better if WPKG updates the local XML after every processed package?
