Wouldn't it be better to do "dpkg --pending --configure" first, to see
what it's trying to do in the .postinst?  Just because the
configuration is working doesn't mean it isn't broken in some way and
I'd like to get all my scripts run correctly before hacking them.

otoh, it's woody, which means that some scripts, on some days, are
just broken anyway.
