Bug#32608: dpkg: start-stop-daemon should cd / first

Package: dpkg
Version: 1.4.1


I often install .debs from a Zip disk.  When I come to umount the Zip disk,
it's often busy.  At this point I hunt around, restarting daemons and
programs until I hit the one which caused the problem.

Most of these programs have been started via "start-stop-daemon".  Since I
am in /zip/debs when installing the program, guess where the process gets
attached to.  Doing a "cd /" at the beginning of start-stop-daemon should
fix this AFAIK.
