Burn Bootstrapper does not uninstall chained MSI

This post has NOT been accepted by the mailing list yet.
Hi, i have a problem with an MSI that is not registered properly and thus not uninstalled if not set visible in the bootstrapper (text from my stackoverflow question, maybe I will get more people to see it here http://stackoverflow.com/questions/31433770/burn-bootstrapper-does-not-uninstall-chained-msi)

I have a Burn Bootstrapper with 2 MSIs and 2 Exe Packages. My Product MSI does not get uninstalled when I uninstall with the bootstrapper. relevant Package part from Bundle.wxs

    <MsiPackage SourceFile="Resources\MyProduct.msi" ForcePerMachine="yes" Visible="yes" Permanent="no">

(the visibility is only set to be able to uninstall "per hand" later on. The install log seems to be alright regarding installation of the product, and it shows (the MSI) in Add/Remove Programs. (excerpt)

on uninstall however the state of the package is always absent, thus not uninstalled. is this a possible bug or am I missing something painfully obvious? uninstall log excerpt:

Tested with a VM and an empty snapshot, to be sure to not have a tainted testing environment. (using WiX 3.8 + wixextba because i need ability to check for two directories listed and a few little checks here and there)

edit: with a fresh head this morning i tried it again, and reread all the logs probably the culprit may be (different guids, new run...)

    [0FA0:054C][2015-07-16T10:09:48]w355: Unable to register source directory: C:\ProgramData\Package Cache\{39A0BA42-7EAB-435C-BADC-C531E5B16763}v3.14.0000\, product: {39A0BA42-7EAB-435C-BADC-C531E5B16763}, reason: 0x80070645. Continuing...

MSDN Errorcodes 1605 is "ERROR_UNKNOWN_PRODUCT" yet the MSI Installation log has no "return value 3" and states

    MSI (s) (90:78) [11:06:10:483]: Windows Installer installed the product. Product Name: MyProduct. Product Version: 3.14.0000. Product Language: 1031. Manufacturer: MyManufacturer. Installation success or error status: 0.

I can uninstall it when set Visible="yes".

Is this a bug in the Bootstrapper? The MSI log has not a single return value 3. I am baffled.

kind regards,
