Problem description: 

Uninstall failed to delete folders with pycache files.
While these files may not have been created during installation,
they do not appear to be anything that user would want to keep.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Install LibreOffice 4.1.04 (on windows xp)
2. (Tried version of LibreOffice Calc)
3. Uninstall (via control panel, add or remove programs)

Current behavior:

16 folders and 45 files remain

program/__pycache__/  (3 .cpython-33.pyc files)
program/python-core-3.3.0/lib/__pycache__/ (29 .cpython-33.pyc files)
program/python-core-3.3.0/lib/collections/__pycache__/ (2 .cpython-33.pyc files)
program/python-core-3.3.0/lib/encodings/__pycache__/ (6 .cpython-33.pyc files)
program/python-core-3.3.0/lib/importlib/__pycache__/ (2 .cpython-33.pyc files)

share/extensions/dict-en/pythonpath/__pycache__/ (3 .cpython-33.pyc files)

Expected behavior:

All LibreOffice application folders and files are removed.

Additional info:

Bug 32112 comment 13 indicates the problem is known but deserves a separate bug report.  (I didn't find one so here is a such a report.)  (Bug 32112 comment 13 also mentions the new pycache folders are the suspected cause of the regression.)
Operating System: Windows XP
Version: release
