It doesn't matter if dictd is copied to dictd.orig as in my example, or
deleted entirely.

start-stop-daemon -exec checks to see if the process it is stopping has
an executable that is the same as the specified filename. On upgrade,
dpkg replaces one dictd executable with the other, so by postinst
configure time it will behave as I describe.
