After upgrading with latest slackpkg

After upgrading with latest update with slackpkg in Slackware64-13.0 it was found that several configuration files had new versions. After looking at the diffs the following file would have been made empty /etc/rc.d/rc.hald, rc.messagebus and rc.mysqld, this is wrong!

Can anyone shed some light on why this is happening?

I had exactly the same happen to me. At the time, I thought I had been sloppy and overlooked something, but I guess there could be a real bug.

I will point PiterPUNK to this thread, perhaps he can tell us something we don't know
