This is a dpkg feature.
Imagine you use leafnode and have customised your /etc/leafnode.conf.
Now you install a new version of leafnode.
dpkg will notice that there is already a /etc/leafnode.conf and if will
ask what to do.
- You can keep your old config, then dpkg will install the config file from
the package as /etc/leafnode.conf.dpkg-dist, so you don't loose your
customisation, but still can inspect the package maintainers version.
- You can install the package maintainer's version of the config
file. dpkg will automaticaly rename your old config file to
/etc/leafnode.conf.dpkg-old, so you can revert to your custom file.
Most likely you told dpkg to keep your old /etc/init.d/xdm file, which was
a dummy script.
