Yes, of course. I was never implying to change the code/package in the
way I did, I was just desperate to get the new version out to my servers.

I opened a bug and reported my findings (#441621), but I still don't
knwo, why the bacula daemons behave like this since 2.2.x. Unfortunately
I don't have the time right now to single step the process startup via
gbd or to insert printfs to debug the problem any further, so this is up
to upstream.
