Default 1.0-7167 --uninstall issue

I downloaded the latest kernel ( from kernel.org trying to get the 1.0-7167 driver working with my system. Unfortunately it didn't and I was hoping that my system wouldn't get all screwed up when I had to reinstall the 1.0-6629 again.
This is what i did and what happened:

I have both the 6629 and 7167 extracted in the same directory

cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7167-pkg1/

rmmod nvidia

./nvidia-installer --uninstall

cd ../NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6629-pkg0/

./nvidia-installer -na
When the installation was almost done, an error message popped up:

WARNING: The symbolic link '/usr/X11R6/lib/libXvMCNVIDIA_dynamic.so.1'
	 does not point to 'libXvMCNVIDIA.so.1.0.6629' as is
	 necessary for correct operation of the NVIDIA Accelerated
	 Graphics Driver for Linux-x86.  It is possible that
	 `ldconfig` has created this incorrect symbolic link because
	 libXvMCNVIDIA.so.1.0.7167's "soname" conflicts with
	 that of libXvMCNVIDIA.so.1.0.6629.  It is recommended that
	 you remove or rename the file
	 'libXvMCNVIDIA.so.1.0.7167' and create the necessary
	 symbolic link by running `ln -sf libXvMCNVIDIA.so.1.0.6629
Ok, an easy to fix problem, but in my perspective this could be done by the 7167 uninstaller itself since it's running as root. I suspect this is just a typo somewhere in the script and it might already be taken care of but none the less I wanted you to know.
