Yes, currently postinst scripts don't manipulate config files and every
upgrade or reconfiguration create .dist files for manual solving

There was some job for start use ucf for config manipulations, but this
is relatively big changes, so we didn't include them into current

I think, this is a normal bug, not important, so it will not be fixed
for wheezy. It is not good, that we even don't notify user. But 5.2.6
can work with config from 5.0.2 without problems, so we can ignore
this, imho.
