I tried to remove a collection using tlmgr --gui, and it does not
work properly: all the files on the harddisk were deleted, but the
package database was not updated. All packages in that collection
remain listed as installed, as well as the collection itself
tlmgr remove collection-binextra
did finally remove the packages from the tlmgr database properly,
but there was no way to fix the problem via --gui alone.
Removal of individual packages within the perltk gui works fine,
the problem seems limited to collections and schemes.
