we would like to fix the following two problems in stable:

1 ) The bacula packages are vulnerable to a security problem similar to
CVE 2017-14610 (PID files not owned by root). On the downside this
change disables a bacula feature that permits automatic tracebacks on a
crash. I've mailed the security team about this, they recommended a
stable update.

2) Bug #880529: When updating from jessie to stretch, the package
"bacula-director-common" will be removed, but the postrm will stay
around. Upon purging this package, postrm unconditionally removes the
main bacula configuration file /etc/bacula/bacula-dir.conf, leaving
bacula unusable. We fix this by introducing a transitional package that
can then be safely removed.
