I did the change and will do some testing later in combination with
tests for 9.2.2.

Can you test on kFreeBSD if using "-k" as permanent option for bacula-fd
fails on there, because FreeBSD doesn't have capabilities?

If this causes propblems, we need to either reintroduce the ARGS
variable for /etc/defaults/bacula-fd or put an automatic arch-detector
into the init-script.
