Comment 1 Jiri Ryska 2005-04-26 09:58:09 EDT
This is not a bug because these files (in /etc/log.d/scripts/services/) are in
fact executables. This is the same as if you compile your own binary, for
example /bin/bash. So when you upgrade bash, this file /bin/bash will be
replaced. Files that have backups are config files.
