Followup-For: Bug #699647
Control: found -1 1.3.5~rc3-2.1

The problem is still present and this time I dug into it and analyzed
the real cause: the insane postrm script in 0.3-1, see #726742

Adding Breaks/Replaces against a package itself is useless, so drop them

To fix this, add a proftpd-mod-geoip.preinst script that checks for
existence of a postrm script in the previous version and delete this
bad script ...

something like

set -e

case "$1" in
    if dpkg --compare-versions "$2" lt-nl "0.3-1+deb7u1"
        rm -fv /var/lib/dpkg/info/proftpd-mod-geoip.postrm


(assuming this gets fixed in wheezy with version 0.3-1+deb7u1)
(it's important to check in the install case as well, becuase the package
may be in config-files-remaining state where the bad postrm still exists
