Your package is currently using /lib/init/rw/ which is now deprecated
and pending removal.  Please update your package to use /run/ with a
versioned dependency on initscripts, as detailed below.

An overview of the /run transition and its current progress is
available at http://wiki.debian.org/ReleaseGoals/RunDirectory
Basically, it's now in both testing and unstable, and the next
phase of the transition is to migrate all users of /lib/init/rw
over to /run and then remove /lib/init/rw entirely for wheezy
(as soon as this transition is complete).

Your package is one of the users of sendsigs.omit.d listed here:

Recommendations for how to do the transition may be found here:

For transitioning from /lib/init/rw to /run, we would recommend that

* Depend on initscripts (>= 2.88dsf-13.3)
* Replace all usage of /lib/init/rw with /run
* Move all files in /lib/init/rw to /run in the package postinst
