Package: perdition
Version: 1.17.1-2+lenny2
Severity: serious

I just upgraded to the latest lenny perdition package. The upgrade resulted in
the /etc/perdition/popmap.*.db files being removed and not regenerated.

It seems that I was upgrading from 1.17.1-2.

I suspect this could be the result of the fix for bug #595432. I'm not sure if
it is a bug in the old package or a bug in the new package version but the new
packages should gracefully upgrade from the old, irrespective of which one is

This resulted in loss of service while the problem was debugged and corrected so
I consider it a serious problem.

Only upgrades from the previous stable (and from packages in between) 
are supported.

I am closing this bug since it does not even seem to be relevant
to squeeze -> wheezy upgrades.
