lightdm installs the file /usr/share/polkit-1/rules.d/lightdm.rules, but has a permissions conflict with polkit, which owns /usr/share/polkit-1/rules.d. This results in the following message:

(1/1) reinstalling lightdm
warning: directory permissions differ on /usr/share/polkit-1/rules.d/
filesystem: 750 package: 700

Additional info:
* lightdm 1:1.16.3-1
* polkit 0.113-4

Steps to reproduce:
- Remove or back up /usr/share/polkit-1/rules.d
- (Re)install polkit
- (Re)install lightdm
