Please be a better community member.  Tell more about your side of
the story.  Share here the two versions of /etc/init.d/dnsmasq One
version is "the Raspberry Pi version", the other "xubuntu".  Doing so
makes it possible to compare the versions.  It will reveal what made
the real difference.

Silence is hard to parse
