Sometimes devlopers just don't get it right! Here is a great example on an open source project where they have managed to get a script really really wrong.
The original problem is here and the problem is a simple typo in the install / upgrade scripts for the package. Where a space has been inserted into command line which seperated the single argument into the command line into two parts.
The command was really meant to be
rm -rf /usr/lib/nvidia-current/xorg/xorg
But was accidently
rm -rf /usr /lib/nvidia-current/xorg/xorg
For the non linux / unix people out there this is the same as removing the "Program Files" folder from the machine when the package was installed.
