Bug#295591: apache-common: postinst is extremely picky about /var/state/apache/mod_bandwidth/

Package: apache-common
Version: 1.3.33-3
Severity: normal


So I'm upgrading from woody:

Setting up apache-common (1.3.33-3) ...
rmdir: `/var/state/apache/mod_bandwidth': Directory not empty
dpkg failed

Well, since we dont use mod_bandwitdth anymore, I just rm -rf ed that
dir, imagine my surprise when I saw this way up in the error messages on
the next try:

Setting up apache-common (1.3.33-3) ...
rmdir: `/var/state/apache/mod_bandwidth': No such file or directory

Now I'm sorry to upset that script by doing it's work but ... uhm :)

Please try to catch those two cases without exiting with an error code
to dpkg, because those are realy annoying problems and sometimes hard to
spot in the output from apt-get.

HTH, 2ri
