Bug#2388: gpm doesn't preserve configuration over upgrades

Package: gpm
Version: 1.00-11

gpm shouldn't redo my configuration /etc/init.d/gpm everytime I
reinstall it.  In fact, /etc/init.d/gpm should be a conffile.  The
                    if [ "$1" != "upgrade" ]; then
treatment should be used in the postinst to achieve this, I think.
Moreover, I think the postinst should offer to start gpm
(/etc/init.d/gpm start).

Since I had to take a look at the postinst, I noticed the line:
                      chmod a+x /etc/init.d/gpm
Shouldn't that be chmod 755 instead (just in case some weird umask is
