Default shall I file a bug for package trousers on Sid?

Hi y'all:

I had the package "trousers" installed on an old machine where there is no TPM
hardware. So the package makes no sense on that machine. I wanted to
deinstall.

Funny:
Deinstalation wants to stop the tscd daemon. Demon does not run because driver
is not installed. Logically invoke-rc.d comes back with an error, saying that
daemon is not running.
Well, that's what we want, right?
But install script stops because of an error - not checking the kind of error.
Not realizing that the error counzts as a success because we DO WASNT that the
daemon does not run.
Deinstallation fails with error instead of going on.

Workaround:
svae /usr/sbin/invoke-rd.d to invoke-rc.d.org
delete all contents of invoke-rc.d and just leave "exit 0".

run dpkg -P trousers again.
trousers is deinstalled.

copy back /usr/sbin/invoke-rc.d.org onto /usr/sbin/invoke-rc.d

All's well that ends well but is this not a bug?
Should i file a bug against trousers in Sid?

All the best
Eike

I have just installed and purged trousers on an unstable machine. No
problems with either procedure. You may want to do some more testing
yourself before considering the BTS.

Answer: Yes.

Answer: No! Bug #676828 was already filed and considered solved with the new
version of trousers.
Should have looked before.
Sorry for the noise.
