Major Upgrade not deleting files

I experience a strange behavior with a Major Upgrade:

In version 1 of my product I had files in a component (lets call it component A) that where associated with feature 1.

In version 2 of my product (which does a Major Upgrade over version 1) component A is still included (and has some updated files) but it is no longer associated with feature 1. (however component A is still associated with a feature 2 which is not used anymore and never installed)

When I install version 2 (only feature 1) from scratch, the files from component A are not installed as expected. No problem here.

BUT if I install version 2 (only feature 1) on version 1 forcing a Major Upgrade, not only do the files from component A are not deleted, they are actually updated with the newer version. Why would that be ??

What do you have in the Remove column of the Upgrade table?
Generate a log to see if feature 2 gets installed.
