Package: wpasupplicant
Version: 0.6.9-3
Severity: normal
File: /etc/init.d/wpa-ifupdown

/etc/init.d/wpa-ifupdown says:
#                       Since initscripts package version 2.86.ds1-48 an
#                       interface exists to omit process id's from sendsigs. If
#                       this interface is present this script is a no-op.

Lenny has initscripts 2.86.ds1-61, and Debian doesn't support upgrades
that skip a release.  Thus, please just remove this script entirely.  If
you want, you could add an explicit dependency on initscripts
(>= 2.86.ds1-48).
