RPM installation still overwrites custom configuration files in
/etc/xpra. Also, both 0.9.1 and 0.9.2 RPMs produce a new warning during
installation, probably due to the modification in the RPM spec file:

Installing : xpra-0.9.2-1.fc17.x86_64
Non-fatal POSTIN scriptlet failure in rpm package xpra-0.9.2-1.fc17.x86_64
