Package: acpid
Version: 1.0.10-2
Severity: important


I upgraded acpid as the Lenny one no longer works with 2.6.29 kernel.

The package scripts renamed my powerbtn event to powerbtn.dpkg-bak.

The powerbtn-acpi-suppport.sh checks for powerbtn event to see if it
should shut down or leave the work to powerbtn.

Since the package scripts have renamed the event the system will now
shut down instead of suspend, or even shutdown just after resume.

This will obvoiusly cause data loss.
