'guix -p $HOME/guix-test-profile' lists only 1 generation (but I did
create another one and then I rolled-back).

I run 'guix gc' and now I find dangling symlinks in my $HOME.  One
symlink is still active (the active generation) which imply that it is
registered as a GC root.  However, it's not in
'/usr/local/var/guix/profiles' (I installed from source with the default
prefix=/usr/local).  Not sure where to find it.

Thanks for the suggestions.
