Which package?

Normally these symlinks aren't included in the .deb but maintained by
the package's maintainer scripts -- usually with update-rc.d

If you can state which version of which package you're seeing this with,
we can take a look to see what's *really* going on.

Have you ever, ever felt like this?
Had strange things happen?  Are you going round the twist?
