Bug#438779: boinc-client: update of package should not start new version automatically

This is more a reminder for myself than a real bug report. I though it
was preferable to start the client post installation only
* when there was no prior installation of boinc-client
* there was a prior installation and it was running when the update
The szenario that I just ran into was that I had donated
a colleague the machine for his computations, /etc/init.d/boind stopped
for that and then did apt-get -u dist-upgrade. Boinc-client was started
but I should have asked at least.
