Package: sysvinit
Version: 2.88dsf-5
Severity: normal
Tags: sid


since last upgrade (makefile style migration ?) I got strange 
behaviour of the boot sequence.

If I interupt some script with ctrl+c, the dependency are lost (not fs
mounted, no network, ...).
With the previous version this worked.

I interrupt sometimes fsck (when I don't want to wait), now this doesn't

Also on my system udev script hang at the end (until there is a
timeout). I often hit ctrl+c to avoid waiting the timeout. This now make
the system not usable.

If ctrl+c is not supported anymore, it should blocked to avoid this
strange behaviour.
