Hi Christopher,

Forgive me if this sounds stupid... are you talking about a file called
old_passwords.cnf? A change in the setting of old_passwords in my.cnf or
the fact that the password for debian-sys-maint in debian.cnf changes on

If it's the debian.cnf, this is expected behavior. (Although something
that it might be nice to fix in a different way at some point for some
larger installs)
