This script doesn't ever get executed on Debian, only on a Citrix
XenServer (see the file name). It's harmless in the Debian packaging.
Since this script doesn't ever get executed on Debian, it's not really
a good idea to ship it, because it causes false-positives like this,
and for other reasons. This is therefore still a bug, though lower
priority. This problem was already reported as bug #663051, so I'm
merging this new bug with that one.
