Multilib packages and data files



Hi,

I just detected that when I have (on a x86_64 system) both the x86_64
and i386 versions of a package "foo" installed and I remove the i386
version (rpm -e foo.i386), then it removes the documentation files
(/usr/share/doc/xyz-...) that belonged (or should belong?) to both 
packages, so "rpm -V foo" then shows the missing files.

I tried this on RHEL4: when I remove all i386 packages after a full
install (OK, maybe "I just should not do this" ;-)) there are about
4800 files missing in the left-over x86_64 packages: documentation
files, but also "locale" files etc.

Is this a bug or is there a reasonable explanation (which I can't
imagine...)?

Cheers,
