This may be a corollary of an lsb-base bug in conjunction with an
ancieng but in start-stop-daemon which has caused a lot of grief but
was eventually fixed earlier this year. I have, however, followed your
suggestion in svn and killproc is now always given a process name.
This might probably help, and issues like that have been vanished in
other packages recently. So I hope that this has vanished in the mean
time, at least in Debian.

I am not very motivated to do Ubuntu support, sorry.
