Bug#240669: Source of this problem

The problem here is the new code in 6.2.5-5 to "only run in daemon mode
if the global config doesn't."

Unfortunately, the default /etc/fetchmailrc file contains a commented
out daemon 300 line, which the grep -qs check is picking up, AFAICT.

Anyway, uncommenting the line in /etc/fetchmailrc makes it daemonise

In fact, upon examination, it doesn't appear to be using
/etc/default/fetchmailrc anymore... dpkg says it doesn't own it anymore,
so the comment in /usr/share/doc/fetchmail/examples/fetchmailrc.example
needs to be fixed, and possibly some kind of notice in NEWS.Debian so
people know to delete /etc/default/fetchmail and fix /etc/fetchmailrc
