> I moved LocalSettings.php there (overwriting the symlink without realizing), and only then fixed the permission problem. At the next upgrade, dpkg quietly turned my LocalSettings.php into a broken symlink, causing both a disruption of service and a limited data loss.

FWIW, I'm not the first one to experience this, this was already indirectly reported in #581177.
