Product still listed in Add/Remove Programs

    When I uninstall my product by selecting change in the
    Add/Remove Programs dialog, then selecting Remove in the
    Maintenance Type dialog, it is still listed in the
    Add/Remove Programs dialog after the install has finished
    removeing the product.

    If you manually refresh the dialog the listing goes away.

    If I remove the product by using the Remove button in the
    Add/Remove Programs dialog the listing is automatically
    removed from the dialog.

    I have tried to debug this but haven't gotten too far.
    I've created logs for both product remove methods. When
    the listing is removed automatically the log has a bunch
    of extra events such as:

    MSI (s) (48:EC): Post-install cleanup: removing installer
    file 'C:\WINNT\Installer\21bc1.msi'
    MSI (s) (48:EC): Post-install cleanup: removing installer
    file 'C:\WINNT\Installer\{D6C04932-A2AC-4B6D-8C15-
    63EBB5F0FF56}\1033.MST'
    MSI (s) (48:EC): Post-install cleanup: removing installer
    folder 'C:\WINNT\Installer\{D6C04932-A2AC-4B6D-8C15-
    63EBB5F0FF56}\' (if empty)
    MSI (s) (48:EC): Post-install cleanup: removing installer
    file 'C:\WINNT\Installer\{D6C04932-A2AC-4B6D-8C15-
    63EBB5F0FF56}\moiicon.ico'
    MSI (s) (48:EC): Post-install cleanup: removing installer
    folder 'C:\WINNT\Installer\{D6C04932-A2AC-4B6D-8C15-
    63EBB5F0FF56}\' (if empty)

    When I run the remove via the UI sequence these events are
    not executed.

    Besides running the UI sequence what other differences are
    there in removing a product given the 2 different method
    available? What can I do in my UI sequence to make sure
    that these extra events are executed when I select to
    remove the product?
