Bug#1820: snmp postinst backgrounds start-stop-daemon ?

Package: snmp
Version: 2.1.2l3-1

The snmp package installs a file in /etc/init.d, which runs
 start-stop-daemon --start --verbose --oknodo --exec /usr/sbin/snmpd &

Ie, in the background.  This resulted in a confusing message about
starting snmpd during the installation of the next package.

Can snmpd not be persuaded to background itself, like most daemons,
and so avoid requiring start-stop-daemon to be be invoked in the
background ?
