Package: initscripts
Version: 2.87dsf-2
Severity: normal

If we look at the dependency information of /etc/init.d/rc.local we see
# Required-Start:    $remote_fs $syslog
but in /etc/rc.local we read 
# This script is executed at the end of each multiuser runlevel.

Without dependecy based booting /etc/rc.local also has been started at

The dependency information should be updated to start
/etc/init.d/rc.local at the very end of the boot process.
