It's not, not at all.

	or as launchpad seems to be down right now, look at your locally 
	installed /var/lib/dpkg/info/lirc.postinst

There are no similarities at all, nothing in Debian's postinst even 
looks at /dev/input/. So obviously Debian's lirc packages can't be 
affected by your issue, because they don't contain the potentially 
faulty lines (and never did in any previous version in Debian).

Whatever you want to accomplish in Ubuntu, we are not the ones to talk 
to. Please take it up with the Ubuntu maintainers, there is (almost) no
cooperation between Debian- and Ubuntu lirc maintainers and the 
packaging differs significantly.

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
