I've found that cfengine2 is a reasonable way to handle
a lot of these problems. I to a debian upgrade and my
my cfengine2 scripts run off daemon or cron.d within
minutes and "fix" whatever debian packages have done
that I don't like.

I've also got another approach I'm working that relies
on specially burned locked down update images on CD.
That way the debian package upgrade never need occur
on the actual appliance.
