leftover /etc/init.d/bind9.dpkg-dist on each upgrade

Bug Description

Binary package hint: bind9

When doing a server upgrade with all server tasks installed I get a .dpkg-dist file in /etc/default/bind9.dpkg-dist. This causes the auto-upgrade-tester to assume its a leftover conffile. When I diff the bind9 and bind9.dpkg-dist files they are the same.

It turns out that:
is different from
and this cause the postinst script to write a dpkg-dist file.

But it gets stranger, when I tried to track this, I logged into a clean karmic chroot and ran:
# apt-get install bind9
# cd /
# md5sum -c --quiet /var/lib/dpkg/info/bind9.md5sums
usr/share/bind9/bind9-default.md5sum: FAILED
md5sum: WARNING: 1 of 32 computed checksums did NOT match


Related branches

The same md5sum error is produced in lucid for me (in a clean chroot).

summary: - conffile prompt on 9.10 -> 10.04
+ leftover /etc/init.d/bind9.dpkg-dist on 9.10 -> 10.04

I uploaded a fix for this now into natty, its just:

--- bind9-9.7.3.dfsg/debian/bind9-default.md5sum
+++ bind9-9.7.3.dfsg/debian/bind9-default.md5sum

so the default md5sum is out of date.

bind9 (1:9.7.3.dfsg-1ubuntu1) natty; urgency=low

  * debian/bind9-default.md5sum:
    - updated to reflect the default md5sum in maverick and natty, this
      avoids a bogus /etc/default/bind9.dpkg-dist file
