My understanding is that during cleanup the pre/post-uninstall
scriptlets of the version you are removing are being processed.
Without knowing what the uninstall scriptlets were in the version of
xorg-x11-twm that you removed as part of the cleanup actually was...
its going to be difficult to diagnose that message.  The latest
xorg-x11-twm package  xorg-x11-twm-6.8.2-62 doesn't have any
scriptlets as far as I can tell so we can't look there for any clues.
