Right, because dict-wn is just a database.  It detects if a dict-server
is installed and restarts it so it is aware of the change in available
databases, but the restart was blocked (according to the log) due to the
invoke-rc.d policy.

This sounds like something (without having looked at the details) that
would be prime for triggers instead of having the various
database-providing package worry about what the server needs to do.
