Description jiri vanek 2016-02-26 09:19:19 EST
Motivation is this case:

alternatives --install  /home/x/master-name master  /home/x/master1-path 10  --slave /home/x/slave-name slave /home/x/slave1-path
alternatives --install  /home/x/master-name master  /home/x/master2-path 20  --slave /home/x/slave-name slave /home/x/slave2-path

now `slave` is pointing to /home/x/slave2-path is selected.
When you delete /home/x/slave-name
  and remove
alternatives --remove  master1 home/x/master1-path (not selected one)
then the link is not restored, even when another record is still there and should be pointing
(same is valid also for operations directly on master)

On contrary, when you 
  alternatives --remove  master1 home/x/master2-path (selected one)
the link is restored (during moving of target to another valid target)

I do not insists this is bug. I just would like to know the opinions.
