Comment (by warmerdam):

 The installer loads the installed.db file contents at startup and writes
 them back out when it terminates.  This causes significant problems if you
 delete the OSGeo4W tree while the installer is running - mostly because it
 saves an installed.db file indicating many packages are installed that are
 not actually installed.

 For now the only advice I have is to ensure that the installer is
 terminated before clearing the tree.
