Package: samba-common
Version: 3.0.28-3
Severity: important

This morning upgrade went bad because of samba-common:

Setting up samba-common (3.0.28-3) ...
cp: cannot stat `/usr/share/samba/smb.conf.etch': No such file or directory
dpkg: error processing samba-common (--configure):
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1

There's nothing like /usr/share/samba/smb.conf.etch, this install never had an
etch installed.
