Cavsfan, the comment was copied from the original script; it may not be accurate with this one. I think the normal case after installing a kernel with this script is three kernels in the never-auto-remove list. There may probably be four kernels installed then (before autoremoving). If that is too much, running the script without command line arguments as a startup script as root helps (combined with regular autoremoving). That also prevents the running kernel from being autoremoved, in case you boot a kernel that is not protected by the never-auto-remove list. The script may keep even more kernels from getting autoremoved, if there are ones that are marked as manually installed, but you can control that by using apt-mark.

But once autoremove is completed the machine requests to be rebooted and at that time the /etc/apt/apt.conf.d /01autoremove-kernels file lists the 3.19.0-12-generic and 3.19.0-10-generic kernels. So upon rebooting the 3.19.0-11-generic is requested to be autoremoved leaving only one kernel the latest one 3.19.0-12-generic.
