Package: system-tools-backends
Version: 2.4.2-1
Severity: normal

Setting up system-tools-backends (2.4.2-1) ...
Starting System Tools Backends: system-tools-backendsinvoke-rc.d: initscript system-tools-backends, action "start" failed.
dpkg: error processing system-tools-backends (--configure):
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1

I belive this happened because the daemon was already running when the
postinst tried to start it, because dbus was also upgraded in this apt run,
and its init script will restart system-tools-backends.
