[Pkg-sysvinit-devel] issues with insserv, CONCURRENCY=shell and bootlogd enabled

In bugreport #507722, Jochen Schulz pointed out, that insserv and
CONCURRENCY=shell in combination with bootlogd enabled leads to lots of
boot messages to being suppressed. One of the suppressed messages is the
cryptsetup passphrase prompt (from the cryptdisks initscript).

This happens only with both CONCURRENCY=shell and BOOTLOGD_ENABLE=Yes
set. If either of the both is not set, then everything works as
expected. Thus the issue is neither only a problem with bootlogd, nor
with insserv, but only with the combination of both.

I guess that this behaviour is not intended and can be considered as a

Some testing revealed that not only the cryptdisks boot prompt is
suppressed. Instead, all boot messages from initscripts run after
bootlogd start and before bootlogd stop aren't displayed. The only
exception are the kernel messages produced by mount.

I don't know much about bootlogd and insserv. Could you give me advice
on how to go on with the bugreport? Shall I reassign it to sysvinit or
insserv? Or do further debugging?
