It compares the config files to the original version. If they are the
same, it is may delete them. It seems like you have multiple packages
already isntalled for nmh. E.g. it removed the entries for nmh-1.0.4nb4,
but you also had nmh-1.0.4. That's a broken installation and the
infrastructure is not written to deal with that as it should not be in
that state in the first place.
