Bug#583247: halevt: lots and lots of things
Justification: renders package unusable
Where do I even begin? First, the halevt daemon kept mounting USB drives and SDHC cards as root.
Then, when I uninstalled it, the halevt user, configuration file in /etc/halevt/ and the service in /etc/init.d stayed behind.
Upon trying to reinstall, halevt complained about no configuration file. Shouldn't it add its own if none is found?
Even though APT and dpkg are run as root, the installer doesn't automatically chown the home directory to the new user it was created for.
This is totally and completely broken. I'm switching to PCManFM for my automounting needs until this gets fixed.
