    I agree. It’s often not a problem, but some troublesome packages have been:
    – Samba, which changed its default password file format. The upgrade broke smbd until I converted the password file or reconfigured Samba to use the old format.
    – Awesome (the window manager) – it’s always changing! It is configured with a Lua script, and the API changes often, meaning you can end up with a badly configured window manager after an upgrade.
