Maybe someone can push this into developers reference (or policy?) And there is also #601455, which IMO should just be used as a blocking bug for all the other against individual packages, which IMO don't implement it correctly. "invoke-rc.d $foo stop" should always work, even if disabled in /etc/default/foo - and if its not, its a bug in the package. General bugs or ranting usually doesnt really help much - except as reminder, ie in form of a blocking bug. :-) cheers, Holger
