Package: acpi-support
Version: 0.122-1
Severity: serious

Setting up acpi-support (0.122-1) ...
update-rc.d: /etc/init.d/vbesave exists during rc.d purge (use -f to force)
dpkg: error processing acpi-support (--configure):
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

$ dpkg -s acpi-support
 /etc/init.d/vbesave 7d1d976db5611bd53e18c6824803cf44 obsolete
$ md5sum /etc/init.d/vbesave 
7d1d976db5611bd53e18c6824803cf44  /etc/init.d/vbesave

dpkg -s lists a whole lot of other obsolete conffiles that I'm pretty
sure were never modified...
