Binary package hint: transmission

Upstream, in order to fix http://trac.transmissionbt.com/ticket/2505,
has changed the way that settings.json file is saved (see
http://trac.transmissionbt.com/ticket/3172 for details) and now it
overwrites /var/lib/transmission-daemon/info/settings.json symlink with
the real file on both receiving HUP signal and exiting. After
transmission-daemon is restarted users' changes made
to /etc/transmission-daemon/settings.json are going to be silently
ignored.

There are three possible fixes proposed in the upstream ticket, the last
one does look like the safest route.

Reporting on Launchpad to keep track of it for the possible SRU.
