it's an error in the pre-uninstall script. so this is called normally when you
already have a samba package : before it removes the package, it call the
pre-uninstall script and then remove the package.
This may be used to backup data/config files/etc ...
It would be interesting to know where it failed however ...
Is there a way to improve error report in preun/postun/pre/post scripts ?
