I just tested this on a Sid VM, upgrading from 7.4.2-1 to 7.4.2-3 (my
in-development packages) and this went fine, the init-script and service
files migrated ownership from bacula-director-common to

So the existing dependencies are fine, no need for special Conflicts/Breaks.

But: After a reboot the services would no longer start using the systemd
units, because /var/run/bacula was no longer existing, because
/etc/tmpfiles.d/bacula.conf is missing. It should be in bacula-common
but no longer ist.

ANd here I am totally confused. I looked at several of my systems, some
having the stock bacula-common_7.4.2-1 package which also does not
contain /etc/tmpfiles.d/bacula.conf but the systems *has* the file and
"dpkg -S /etc/tmpfiles.d/bacula.conf" tells me it is contained in
bacula-common but inspection the DEB clearly shows it is not there.

Have I hit a strange corner case with dpkg, where it thinks a file
belongs to a package if a former version provided the file but the file
then vanished from the package in a later version?
