I did not checked the bacula-director case explicitly. But, in case
of a software using a DB and using dbconfig-common, the database
dependency cannot be a hard one (ie a Depends) as the database can
be installed on another machine. Instead, Recommends or even
Suggests are used. This is perhaps the reason why Alexander Golovko
see some problems in postinst order between the DB and its package.

One possible solution would be that apt (dpkg?) try to order package
postinst as much as possible, not only for depends as currently, but
also recommends and suggests *when possible*. I do not know at all
if what I suggest is already implemented or not.
