Package: dpkg
Version: 1.10.18
Severity: important

I was asked about a problem with starting ipppd, where it suddenly
couldn't find its options file anymore.  This I tracked down to
start-stop-daemon now always doing a chdir("/") before the exec of the

This change of behaviour sucks, and is not documented in the manpage
nor in the changelog.  I guess it's a side-effect of the new -d option?

Please either document this in BOLD letters, or remove the unasked
chdir to root; I can imagine that this may lead to many other problems,
without offering significant benefit (if any).  I now have to
change the invocation of start-stop-daemon to add -d, making it unusable
with old versions.
