Bug#152268: start-stop-daemon hoses setpgid

Package: dpkg
Version: 1.10

In /etc/init.d/coda-client (Coda distributed file system client
daemon, locally built from CVS, see http://www.coda.cs.cmu.edu/),

start-stop-daemon --start --verbose --background --exec $DAEMON

appears to succeed but the daemon dies immediately with

SigInit: setpgid failed (1)

in /var/log/coda/venus.err.

start-stop-daemon --start --verbose --exec $DAEMON &

works properly (except that log output goes to the console, not log
files; I think this has to do with venus, not start-stop-daemon).

This breakage seems to have appeared with dpkg 1.10; the init script
worked fine until a recent upgrade, but I've done a couple of upgrades
over the period of trying to find who killed Venus, so I'm not sure
exactly when this happened.  Late June probably.
