FYI; debian portmap upgrade broken--resolution

I tried to do an upgrade, and the new packages portmap script would just 
stop and hang on install. I fought with it a bit, and finally decided to 
just remove it.
It for some odd reason insisted on stopping a demon that was not even 
running on purge, so I removed the /etc/init.d portmap script and then 
purged and it went fine.
In case anyone else has this problem.
