pbbuttonsd refuses to configure

Sorry guys it's me again.

I've been trying to install pbbuttonsd on my iBook (G3) and every time I
try to install it I get the following error:
invoke-rc.d: initscript pbbuttonsd, action "start" failed.
dpkg: error processing pbbuttonsd (--configure):
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 12
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

Does anybody know how I can get some more useful information about what
is going wrong (or even better how to stop it going wring in the first
place). I have been able to establish that it is in the
"start-stop-daemon" step of the init.d script that it's failing, and
that /var/run/pbbutonsd.pid is generated and left lying around although
there is no process.

Trying to run pbbutonsd without the -d option gives the error:
ERROR: Server is already running. Sorry only one instance allowed.
[This is not altered by the presence or absence of the pid file]

Any ideas?
