[pkg-ggz-maintainers] Bug#473350: permissions problem

This appears to be a permissions problem - ggzd needs /var/lib/ggzd/ and
any files within it to be chmod games.games

It's hard to tell due to the problems with #473350 but once #473350 is
fixed (with an m4 patch from upstream), a simple preinst allows ggzd to
start normally whether or not /var/lib/ggzd exists or contains files.

$ cat debian/ggzd.preinst 
set -e

if [ -d /var/lib/ggzd ]; then
	chown games.games -R /var/lib/ggzd/


I propose to upload a fixed package that also implements the fix for
