Thank you for the bug report.

A fix for this bug is available in
and has also been merged for 3.0.2-1, scheduled for unstable/testing
after wheezy is released.

Here's the result of installing and upgrading generated packages of
puppet and puppetmaster 2.7.18-2, and packages with the bugfix applied.
The apache2 package is also installed.

,----[ 2.7.18-2 ]
| S01apache2 -> ../init.d/apache2
| S02puppet -> ../init.d/puppet
| S02puppetmaster -> ../init.d/puppetmaster

,----[ 2.7.18-2 + bugfix ]
| S01apache2 -> ../init.d/apache2
| S02puppetmaster -> ../init.d/puppetmaster
| S03puppet -> ../init.d/puppet

The puppet agent now starts after the puppet master.

Unfortunately, no. It is late in the wheezy freeze, and the severity is
not high enough for an exception, even though the fix is simple.

It is, however, relevant for the next release, as well as an "update"
release for wheezy, and for backports generated from that.
