Bug Description

Binary package hint: ufw

If the filesystem is read-only, ufw will add and delete rules to the kernel using iptables, but the rules are not added to the rules files, and no error is reported.

      info to reflect reality
    - debian/rules: use upstart if Ubuntu and sysv if Debian

Karmic has 0.29-4ubuntu1 with a backported patch from trunk. While 0.30 isn't released yet, Debian and Ubuntu already have the fix.
