Yeah. I think you're right about this. I just got a little confused
with my gpm problems, I guess.

In fact, now when I think about it, I realise that I used update-rc.d
to get rid of 'em. Sorry, I didn't know about that "feature" of
update-rc.d. In fact, I think it could be argued that the postinst
shouldn't recreate the links if the package was already installed. I
mean, if they have been removed, it must be for a reason, right?

But maybe a postinst script can't detect whether the package was
already installed in a clean way? I don't know...

I get both; and THIS is really annoying. It shouldn't be restarted if
it wasn't running already.

I hope it is. It's definitely a bug.
