Bug#612037: Proftpd fails to start if gadmin-proftpd is used to generate configuration file

Package: gadmin-proftpd
Version: 1:0.4.0-1
Severity: important

More specifically the proftp daemon will die and refuse to restart if you add a
user to the FTP server. Proftpd will fail with the following output whether
started manually from terminal or through gadmin-proftpd.
 - Fatal: TLSRSACertificateFile: '/etc/gadmin-proftpd/certs/cert.pem' does not
exist on line 65 of '/etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf'

I have worked around this issue by doing the following:

gksu mousepad /etc/proftpd/proftpd.conf
And, removed these entries:
TLSRSACertificateFile /etc/gadmin-proftpd/certs/cert.pem
TLSRSACertificateKeyFile /etc/gadmin-proftpd/certs/key.pem
TLSCACertificateFile /etc/gadmin-proftpd/certs/cacert.pem

This fix works (The server is running and I can access from non local machines)
but I am unsure if it is wise.

A quick search shows that /etc/gadmin-proftpd does not contain a folder named
/certs and the files cert.pem, key.pem and cacert.pem do not exist anywhere on
the system.
