Eh, that is not the supported way to disable services. The start
symlinks should be changed to stop symlinks to disable a service the
supported way. Try something like this instead (or 'update-rc.d
script disable' if you have a very recent sysv-rc package :):
for s in nfs-common nfs-kernel-server samba; do
for f in /etc/rc?.d ; do
if [ -e $f/S??$s ] ; then
mv $f/S??$s $f/K01$s
insserv -v # to reorder the stop symlinks based on dependency information

I'm not that familiar with the logic of invoke-rc.d, so I will have to
spend some time to see if I can figure out what is going on there. I
agree that invoke-rc.d should not start disabled services. What
was/is the output from 'runlevel' when you upgraded the packages?
