All of the statements in the script work if I paste them into an
The script returns error 1 iff `set -e` is at the top of it.
With `set -e` commented out, the script returns code 0, and does
everything it is supposed to.
It runs fine if `set -e` is commented out. It does its job no matter
whether `set -e` is in there or not, but `set -e` causes it to return
code 1, which in turn makes `dpkg -i` or `dpkg --configure` fail.
I checked both the "/etc/suid.conf" file, and the ownership and
permissions of the files it is supposed to set... I deleted the lines
in "/etc/suid.conf" that got added by
"/var/lib/dpkg/info/rlpr.postinst", and ran the script. I also
`chown`d the files, so I could see if they are being reset by
suidmanager. I did this once with `set -e` commented out, and again
with it left in. Both runs the entries got made, and the files'
permissions and ownership got set. But with `set -e`, it returns 1,
without it returns 0.

Yes, from an xterm where I've gone `su -`, and verified with `which`
that all of the commands are being found.
It's the `set -e`, I tell you!
