updating GID owner of directories
I found that when dpkg is upgrading a package, it could not
restore the GID owner of contained directories to the new
version in the package:
bilbo:/tmp# dpkg --contents base-files_3.0.3_hurd-i386.deb | grep tmp
drwxrwxrwt root/root 0 2002-06-04 15:42:18 ./tmp/
drwxrwxrwt root/root 0 2002-06-04 15:42:18 ./var/tmp/
bilbo:/tmp# dpkg -i base-files_3.0.3_hurd-i386.deb
(Reading database ... 21633 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace base-files 3.0.3 (using base-files_3.0.3_hurd-i386.deb) ...Unpacking replacement base-files ...
Setting up base-files (3.0.3) ...
bilbo:/tmp# ls -ndl .
drwxrwxrwt 3 0 1000 4096 Jun 4 15:42 .
GID of /tmp was 1000 and hasn't been updated. I guess this is a bug
but i'm not sure if this is the expected behaviour, could you
