This is bug #9349, which is 104 days old, and is currently marked
against Maintainer: "(unknown)" because of the bogus Package:
pseudo-header. Two questions
1) Any objections to me reassigning it to the valid alias of general?
2) Any objections to me closing it? As far as I can see, the problem
of a "not working demon script" is somewhat of a non-issue since
current versions of dpkg uses a C start-stop-daemon and not the
old perl one. And if start-stop-daemon returns an error code even
with --oknodo, the script calling it shouldn't necessarily ignore
