You didn't get my point. In previous versions, RPM behaved like I 
described. It moved away the old file and deleted it. But with the new 
version I can't see any files that have been deleted by the RPM system. 

I just tested with "screen" - I opened a screen session and updated with 
the new screen rpm from the SuSE FTP servers. Although screen is still 
running, there are no deleted processes shown (SuSE 9.0).
A re-test with SuSE 8.1 showed, that a file called "screen-RPMDELETE" has 
been deleted and is still in use, which is what I expected.
