[Pkg-postgresql-public] Bug#787154: postgresql-client-common: Cannot start with port changed in postgresql.auto.conf (through alter system)

Package: postgresql-client-common
Version: 168.pgdg80+1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?
I did an alter system set port=5433. This created a postgresql.auto.conf, which seems not to be parsed by debian tools.

I think the postgresql.auto.conf should be automatically parsed if present by PgCommon, as PostgreSQL does.
