Description of problem:
when installing sendmail-8.12.8-9.80 as an RPM update on a machine where I have
modified the configuration files (sendmail.cf and submit.cf)  the new RPM
installs it's sendmail.cf as sendmail.cf.rpmnew (leaving my customized version
intact)  

Yet it overwrote my submit.cf???!!!

Why??
