Package: multipath-tools
Version: 0.4.7-1.1
Followup-For: Bug #390023

The upgrade path fails. Installing version 0.4.7-1.1 (no upgrade) is
successful. When upgrading, stopping the process before configuring it
(dpkg --configure multipath-tools) solves the problem.

It seems that when prerm script is run during upgrade, 0.4.7-1 init
script isn't able to stop the daemon, since its pidfile is wrong. That's
what causes the issue.

Since this version solves a 0.4.7-1 bug, an upgrade path should be
offered, because, definitively, 0.4.7-1.1 is a better candidate to
stable etch.
