The focus (default button) for the unInstall question "Do you like to remove all data, logs and other files below '<INSTALLATIONDIR>'? ..." should be 'NO' to avoid that a user selects the removal of all data by accident.

This new created bug is to track this remaining open change of bug#21506 (which is now marked as 'solved').

How to repeat:
start unInstall and check the dialog

We have tried to reproduce the issue in Windows (Windows XP 32bits) and
Linux (RH9) but in both cases the default button was "NO". Could you
provide us with more info about the OS and architecture in which you
detected the problem?  Can you send us a screenshot of the issue?

It looks, that with one of the newer installers the behaviour (the default button) changed and the old bug was not updated. My fault, that I created this new bug from the other old one for the "remaining" change without a new test.

As now the default is on 'NO' I close this bug.
