Getting install on first use icon

I have 3 features in the msi. Feature 1 and feature 2 share all the components of the merge module. So, I have marked all the components of the merge module as shared.

Now, I install feature 1, 2, 3. Then, uninstall only feature 1. Later, when I goto maintanence mode I see the 'install on first use' icon on feature 2 on the feature selection dialog. Can someone tell me why this is happening?

How does the 'install on first use' option get set?

Generate a log to see if that gives any clues.
Do you include any file in more than one component?
Do the shared components have COM registration data?
