Ah, ok.  Ooops!  Another cr*p patch from me then, that makes it 2 out of 2 so far.  3rd time lucky maybe :-)

This feature/behaviour has had me confused for quite some time.  Personally I really don't like this behaviour.
I can sort of see an argument for security, but if I've installed the service and enabled it then I'd kind of like it to
stick around after an upgrade, like all of my other possibly insecure config file settings do.

Would I be correct in thinking that this behaviour only occurs if you have the luci-upnp module installed as well?

Is the same thing done for other services like Transmission/asterisk etc?
