Bug#4567: gpm upgrade from 1.06-3 to 1.10-1 is not smooth

Package: gpm
Version: 1.10-1

I tried installing libgpm1_1.10-1.deb and gpm_1.10-1.deb in that order.
The library installed just perfectly, but when gpm's prerm tried to
"/etc/init.d/gpm stop" ... it hung. The init.d script calls gpm -k which
may have gotten confused by the new library?? I was able to kill the
process manually and re-install. But I couldn't find a way for dpkg to
resolve the problem.
