Bug Description

[SRU] This fix was released in openmotif 2.3.3-7ubuntu1 in Raring. While I don't believe this warrants an SRU on its own, the debdiffs attached to LP: #1187507 fix the problem for Precise and Quantal.

[IMPACT]
After purging the package motif-clients, unowned files are left in /etc/X11/mwm.

[Test Case]
Install then purge motif-clients, verify that /etc/X11/mwm is empty.
$ sudo apt-get install motif-clients
$ sudo apt-get purge motif-clients
$ ls -l /etc/X11/mwm/
total 0

On a system where the bug is present, the files menudefs.hook and system.mwmrc will be listed.

[Regression Potential]
Minimal: the fix only affects packaging.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

From the piuparts log file attached to Debian bug #656169:

Purging configuration files for motif-clients ...
  dpkg: warning: while removing motif-clients, directory '/etc/X11/mwm' not empty so not removed.

0m18.5s ERROR: FAIL: Package purging left files on system:
  /etc/X11 owned by: motif-clients, x11-common
  /etc/X11/mwm owned by: motif-clients
  /etc/X11/mwm/menudefs.hook not owned

Thanks for your bug report, I don't see anything to sponsor on this bug (no attachment, no vcs linked, no debdiff), unsubscribing sponsors ... subscribe them back if you have an actual change to be sponsored.

Setting the quantal part of the bug to wontfix, quantal is neither a LTS nor the current stable, the SRU team has limited resourced and those are focussed on the most used series
