You are probably calling some other dh_* script which modifies your maintainer 
scripts, although I failed to see that happening, or this is just some sort 
of revival of #163261, i.e. linda doesn't know that dh_installinit 
with --noscripts passed does not modifies these files and complains for no 
good reasons.
