[Pkg-net-snmp-devel] Bug#605862: snmpd reload is broken

Package: snmpd
Version: 5.4.3~dfsg-1

snmpd works fine if I use:

/etc/init.d/snmpd restart

If I use:

/etc/init.d/snmpd reload

It logs "Warning: no access control information configured.#012
(Config search path:
/etc/snmp:/usr/share/snmp:/usr/lib/snmp:/root/.snmp)#012  It's
unlikely this agent can serve any useful purpose in this state.#012
Run "snmpconf -g basic_setup" to help you configure the snmpd.conf
file for this agent." and stops working.

If I restart the daemon again, then everything comes good, and it
starts responding to queries again.

Not a major problem, but certainly very very confusing until I
realized what was going on. Especially with noise like Bug#605769 to
confuse the matter.
