this "feature" has always existed in FreeBSD for as long as I remember. Of course there are ways to bypass this "feature" but it's there for your protection. You shouldn't be upgrading a program that's in resident memory. That's like trying to reinstall X while running in X. You're just asking for problems. turnoff postfix, install the new version and be happy. Every single 'flavor' of Unix/Unices has always had this feature. I've seen it on HP-UX box's on Solaris Servers, Linux, NetBSD, OpenBSD, FreeBSD. Maybe you wern't paying attention but, that is one of those things I think should fall under duh, i shouldn't do that it might make things crash hard.
