I did not. I should have been more clearly with my example. :-)=
The packages in my example where all console program, that I installed and removed using urpm[ie]. So I explicitly removed only the one program I just installed. And it did not install any other packages, as a result of dependencies.

And this is my point. We uninstall a specific program, not a meta/task package, which result in some packages beeing marked as orphaned, when they are infact Not orphaned.

Because of this we don't trust it.
