Summary: kdm from OBS overwrites current configuration
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 12.2
Version: Final
Platform: x86-64
OS/Version: openSUSE 12.2
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal

When upgrading kdm from OBS repo (KDE SC 4.10 releases,
http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Release:/410/openSUSE_12.2/),
the post-install scripts will backup the currently used file
/usr/share/kde4/config/kdm/backgroundrc to
/usr/share/kde4/config/kdm/backgroundrc.bak and then overwrites backgroundrc.

It should be the other way around, the current backgroundrc should never be
touched, instead a
/usr/share/kde4/config/kdm/backgroundrc.rpmnew should be installed in order to
have a working backup.

As KDE releases monthly updates, it is very tiresome having to revert the
default backgroundrc to the altered one again and again.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
zypper up -l
Actual Results:
codered:/usr/share/kde4/config/kdm # l
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 318 Mar 7 12:45 backgroundrc
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 644 Mar 7 12:36 backgroundrc.bak


Expected Results:
codered:/usr/share/kde4/config/kdm # l
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 318 Jan 2 23:14 backgroundrc
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 644 Mar 7 12:45 backgroundrc.rpmnew
