The postinst:

                mv /var/db /var/db.old
                ln -sf /var/lib/misc /var/db
                cp -a /var/db.old/*.db /var/lib/misc
                rm -rf /var/db.old
            elif [ -f /var/state/glibc/passwd.db ]
                mv /var/state/glibc /var/state/glibc.old
                ln -sf /var/lib/misc /var/state/glibc
                cp -a /var/state/glibc.old/*.db /var/lib/misc/.
                rm -rf /var/state/glibc.old

Any reason for the /var/lib/misc in one and /var/lib/misc/. in the other?


Adrian (expecting there to be about 10 similar reports, but the bug web page
doesn't list them).
