Thank you.  Now I see it too.

 I believe I figured out the problem and a fix.  Try this patch:

Index: debian/src/sysv-rc/etc/init.d/rc
--- debian/src/sysv-rc/etc/init.d/rc    (revision 1898)
+++ debian/src/sysv-rc/etc/init.d/rc    (working copy)
@@ -117,6 +117,7 @@
 case "$CONCURRENCY" in
        makefile|startpar|shell) # startpar and shell are obsolete
+               CONCURRENCY=makefile
                log_action_msg "Using makefile-style concurrent boot in runlevel $runlevel"
                # The splash API is not handled with this CONCURRENCY mode.
                # It need to be implented in startpar.  Until that is done

Will upload a fixed version soon.

Happy hacking,
Petter Reinholdtsen
