snmpd isn't stopped before postinst tries to start it

Bug #270961 reported by Rob Schmidt on 2008-09-16
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
net-snmp (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: snmpd

Sorry if this was already reported but snmpd upgrade failed in "intrepid (development branch)"

The postinst script tried to start snmpd but it was already started.

When I looked at the scripts it seems to be missing a snmpd stop in preinst (there is one in prerm, but that doesn't seem to have an effect on upgrade).

Anyway, I haven't played too much with dpkg package management, but it seems like it should be in preinst since it is in packages like apache2-mpm-prefork and postfix.
