The default PROMPT_COMMAND is set (commented) in skeletal .bash_profile to
'history -a', which has nothing to do with showing your PWD.

The test in the preremove step is done comparing the files under
/etc/skel against those under /etc/defaults/etc/skel. If locally
modified /etc/skel/* files have been removed, that's unexpected.
But there is no way installing base-files could partially modify your
/etc/skel/* files. Even if they were wrongly replaced, you should have
exactly version 4.0-9 files, not partially modified ones.
