Exim4 Incompatable Command Line Arguments
 
After yesterday's upgrades (NOT including exim4 packages), I get a failure to
start exim4 running the /etc/init.d/exim4 script.

If I manually run with presumably the same arguments, i.e. exim4 -bd -q30m,
all is well.

Anyone had this problem, fixed it?

See http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=477194
and http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=406059

The problem actually appears to be caused by lsb-base. One respondent to
the bug report stated that downgrading lsb-base to 3.2-8 fixed it for
him. I didn't have 3.2-8 in my archive and was too lazy to track it down
so I downgraded to 3.2-7 and was then able to start Exim normally.

OK. But since I can start it from the command line with the normal arguments,
maybe the problem is with the daemon tools packages that are used by the
init.d startup scripts. Then again, most every other daemon is going through
this (including lsb-base?) without a hitch.

Anyway, lsb-base 3.2-8 or -7 from testing?
