Bug#135717: severity is incorrect

severity 135717 important

The fact that the conf.d scanning code doesn't ignore .dpkg files can
cause severe breakage when upgrading. (E.g., if you change the mod ssl
config file apache will refuse to start the next time you upgrade
because it tries to bind to port 443 twice, once in your config file and
once in the .dpkg file.) Documenting this as a "feature" is not a
sufficient response for breaking on a normal process (upgrading) within
debian. The bug should arguably be critical for breaking unrelated
software. (E.g., anything that is provided via the web server.)
