Off topic: exim4 on debian disables pipe_trnasport

Dear list,
the newest package for exim4 on debian has pipes disabled by default in
the /etc/aliases b default, which means Your favorite request tracker
won’t get any mails anymore. There is a hint in
/usr/share/doc/exim4-config/README.Debian.gz that You need to reenable
the pipe_transport again in
/etc/exim4/conf.d/router/400_exim4-config_system_aliases.

But, just removing the comment from the line containing

pipe_transport = address_pipe

does not suffice, no even after reloading the configuration or stopping
and starting exim4 completely.

If someone could shed some light on the situation, I’d be very happy.
Up till now, I was very happy with exim4, but this leaves me out in the
cold.

BTW: The error is logged as:

You might want to use the solution from Debian Bug #229052. It saves
you the risk of allowing pipes from the system aliases file, and
automatically picks up new queues from the rt3 configuration - no MTA
configuration needed.

Please consider using a dedicated router/transport.

What do your logs say after that change?
