There are two problems in this bug. First one is an easy one (I attached
a patch for dovecot for it) - dovecot-postfix postinst script should
restart dovecot *after* the certificate links are created, not before.

The second one is about postfix - If you check out DpkgTerminaLog.gz,
you'll notice:

Setting up postfix (2.5.5-1.1) ...

Adding group `postfix' (GID 124) ...


Adding system user `postfix' (UID 113) ...

Adding new user `postfix' (UID 113) with group `postfix' ...

Not creating home directory `/var/spool/postfix'.

Creating /etc/postfix/dynamicmaps.cf

Adding tcp map entry to /etc/postfix/dynamicmaps.cf

Adding group `postdrop' (GID 125) ...


/etc/aliases does not exist, creating it.

Postfix was not set up.  Start with

  cp /usr/share/postfix/main.cf.debian /etc/postfix/main.cf

.  If you need to make changes, edit

/etc/postfix/main.cf (and others) as needed.  To view Postfix

values, see postconf(1).

After modifying main.cf, be sure to run '/etc/init.d/postfix reload'.

I'm not sure why that happened.
