[Pkg-sysvinit-devel] Bug#515595: /sbin/runinit confused over runlevel

Package: sysvinit
Version: 2.86.ds1-61
Severity: important
File: /sbin/runlevel

/sbin/runlevel is obviously confused, while /sbin/init seems to know
precisely what the runlevel is:

  piper:/var/run# strace -fo /tmp/runlevel.strace /sbin/runlevel
  piper:/var/run# ps -fp1
  UID        PID  PPID  C STIME TTY          TIME CMD
  root         1     0  0 Jan27 ?        00:00:10 init [2]  

/var/run is *not* a tmpfs. strace attached.
