motif-clients: unowned files after purge (policy 6.8)
[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.
After purging the package motif-clients, unowned files are left in /etc/X11/mwm.
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/
On a system where the bug is present, the files menudefs.hook and system.mwmrc will be listed.
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:
