[Pkg-monitoring-maintainers] Bug#790951: restarts gmond at bad time during dist-upgrade

Package: ganglia-modules-linux
Version: 1.3.6-1
Severity: serious

During dist-upgrade, ganglia-modules-linux postinst configure is called
before the ganglia-monitor postinst configure

During ganglia-modules-linux postinst configure it calls the init script
restart method, starting the daemon before ganglia-monitor postinst
configure is executed.

The ganglia-monitor postinst configure fails with an error because the
daemon is already running and the dh_installinit generated code doesn't
mask the error.
