I use the same installer for first time installations and to upgrade an 
existing installation 'in-place'. I believe this is what you are trying 
to do and indeed it did not work right initially. It's not just at 
uninstall time that things go wrong, MojoSetup also asks useless 
confirmations, does not delete obsolete files and directories, etc.

However I have patches for that. I have just been too slow pushing them upstream :-(
(I blame it all on Mercurial <g>)

I have recently took the time to give it another try and I'm about to 
post patches that should help. So you may want to give it another try 
when they get in (assuming they do).
