As much as I disagree with upstream, that dbus should never be restarted
(I find the argument bogus, that a dbus restart is equivalent to a
kernel live-restart), I agree with Sam, that given the current
situation, and the many breakages a dbus restart produces, we would do
our users a favor if we didn't restart dbus in lenny.
The problem is, that the dbus package in etch uses the default
dh_installinit behaviour, meaning that dbus will be stopped by the old
prerm script. So we can't avoid a dbus restart anyway for the
etch->lenny upgrade. We can only plan ahead for a lenny->lenny+1 upgrade.
Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
