    Some package managers will do this, others are painless. I prefer pacman, which just appends '.pacnew' to the new file's name (along with a note to stdout). It really annoys me when I come back to an aptitude machine and instead of being finished it's only just started and then stopped at a silly prompt.
    I like both systems for different reasons. The Arch method is convenient for the reason you just mentioned - it's non-intrusive. On the other hand, I have been screwed over on multiple occasions because of a change Arch did that I wasn't aware of, whereas apt explicitly gives you a choice.

    What I would personally prefer is something that does a little bit of both - get the bulk of the packages installed, but at the very end of the installation process, ask about config files that may need to be replaced or revised.

      Irrespective of your biases, you did good here. We all thank you. Now we're gonna get sane behavior out of this.

      Also Thanks needs to go to Michael as well, I mean he develops PTS, and it was his time and equipment and tools that highlighted this. I legitimately feel like Michael deserves to get paid for this. His tools and collection of equipment for highlighting performance regressions is amazing.
      Birdie just has linked one message – that hasn't got any replies – written to LKML by him. I don't think that's enough evidence to claim that he "made Linus notice the issue".

        I wrote to Linus directly as well but there's no URL for that.
