Are you able to reproduce it with current version? I tried it on my testing systems and it's OK

Yeah this issue still exists on every VM I have. Just installing the package then trying to run the script as shown is enough to replicate. Maybe your test systems got that file from elsewhere?

: find / -name 'libglib*'
/usr/local/lib/libglib-2.0.a
/usr/local/lib/libglib-2.0.so
/usr/local/lib/libglib-2.0.so.0.4400.1

Not really, you are still removing too much.

Shared object "libgmodule-2.0.so.0" not found, required by "vmtoolsd" 
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/vmware-guestd.sh: WARNING: failed to start vmware_guestd

And while there, remove /usr/local/lib/libgthread-2.0.so.0 from the list as well to avoid yet another round of this.
