Well, we cannot predict the name of every possible trace file that may be created
under /var/lib/Pegasus/cache/trace, as we cannot know which providers may be
installed or which users may run them. And users may want to keep their trace
logs; a file created by explicit user actions should not be removed by rpm -e .
Hence, this is 'NOTABUG'.
Comment 2 Denise Eckstein 2006-06-05 17:15:53 EDT
The trace files created by OOP processes are really just extensions of the 
cimserver.trc file.  All trace files are controlled by the same cimconfig 
options. To be consistent, if we are keeping the OOP process trace files, we 
should consider keeping the cimserver.trc file.
