Public bug reported:

Setting up mono-xsp ( ...
Using Mono XSP port: 8081
Binding Mono XSP address:
chown: cannot access `/var/run/mono-xsp': No such file or directory
dpkg: error processing mono-xsp (--configure):
 subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1

I got this message because an install failed in between reboots. varrun
was cleared because it's a tmpfs.

It would be safe to say, since varrun is a tmpfs by default, that all
programs should attempt to create their /var/run dirs just before using
them, in init scripts, or elsewhere.
