I suspect this is related to -force-overwrite, which is needed because opkg doesn't install all packages in the right order when files moved between packages.

Hmmm... Interesting....
I will take a look of this when I finished my current tasks.
Which opkg version do you used?
Do you have the log for installing or actual upgrading e-wm-images for first time?
Did it say everything okay?

Thanks you.

Hi Koen,

I found a bug that may cause update file ownership wrongly, and fix in SVN 4830.
It's a hash_table implementation issue.
This bug will relate to files moving from one package to another.

Because I cannot reproduce your issue, could you test this for me?

I tested r4838 and that didn't seem to break anything. Although I haven't been able to reproduce the bug, I can't be 100% it's gone.

Thank you for testing this.
I will testing this for a while and see if this happen again.
Though I cannot reproduce this neither yet, I wrote a test script in my sandbox to check if this issue happens. And I will using that scrip every time I install/upgrade/remove something.
