Bug#158924: tkmail: generic program name conflicts
tkmail ships the file /usr/bin/dotlock. This happens to be the name of
a Debian alternative that the maildrop package sets up when it is
installed. Thus, tkmail's dotlock gets silently replaced by the alternative
Unix mail delivery being what it is, this was bound to happen. tkmail really
should rename the program to something like dotlock.tkmail (and ideally,
also provide another choice for the dotlock alternative).
