Along with the 'set -x' I also added logging statements before and
after the modprobe in /etc/init.d/acpid.  modprobe is called correctly
and $MODULES is propagated with the MODULES that are defined in
/etc/default/acpid.  However, the /etc/init.d/acpid script doesn't get
past the modprobe.  I'm a little short on testing time (as this is
occurring on my primary work machine) however I'll try take a look at
it later today.
