Is .pdb file needed when creating package?

When i make a package with dll file and without the .pdb file. It installs correctly, but when i try to uninstall the package, everything is removed physically but the reference to my lib doesn't disappear in my solution explorer.

When i add the pdb file it uninstalls perfectly.

Am i doing something wrong or should this be added to the documentation?

That shouldn't be the case. Most packages contain DLLs without PDBs and are able to uninstall fine. Do you see this with other packages as well or just that one?

Tested with several packages, the uninstall was ok when the program was running locally.

The problem seems to be TFS related.
Also, now i get some issue where, after i install a package and close the 'adder', the references just disappear.
VS is tormenting me :p

Trying some things, i'll get back to you
