Sometimes, extension can be partially downloaded, for example 90%. We can still install it, because there is no integrity check (that might me another bug). But, we cannot Remove it from Extension Manager. Deleting files from user profile crashes LO, and we get "runtime error" in soffice.bin.

What we need is a "Purge extension" or some other way to completely remove it, including any configuration files, configmgr.ini, backenddb.xml, uno_packages.db, etc.

For issues like this, you should Add Component "Extensions", like in https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=33179.

I decided to close this as WONTFIX because it open for long time, and there are more important issues. 
It's not so important and we can create a new profile without a damaged extension, although it would require to customize profile again.
