I want to refer to bug #363657 and #362825.
Upgradeing a daemon shouldn't presume that the deamon is must be running if it's installed. The script must previously check it.

I've misunderstood the meaning of installation.

otherwise i think that debian should make a policy about daemon
upgrading to avoid things like that bugs.


No problem.

In that case I propose you first check the Debian policy manual [1] to see 
if this subject is already covered or not. I would expect that the basic 
principles of daemons should already be covered there.

After that it is probably best to propose a solution and discuss it on the 
debian-devel mailing list before maybe filing a bug against 

I'm closing this bug report.
