New message when copying file?

Oh but it turns out that ufw doesn't find the profile file if it is in 
the apache2 subdirectory.  So I moved one of them out of the apache2 
subdirectory and now it is working fine and showing all the apps when I 
run ufw app list;

knute at knutejohnson:/etc/ufw/applications.d$ sudo ufw app list
Available applications:
   Apache Full
   Apache Secure
   Dovecot IMAP
   Dovecot POP3
   Dovecot Secure IMAP
   Dovecot Secure POP3

So it appears that the problem really was that there were two profile 
files in /etc/ufw/applications.d and that the directory 
/etc/ufw/applications.d/apache2 is not used by ufw.

Neither of the profile files were new to the upgrade and had been in the 
computer for some time.  This leads me to think that maybe the version 
of ufw in 12.04 didn't care if there were two profile files.
