Package: initscripts
Version: 2.88dsf-13.1
Severity: important

Shutdown (umount*) initscripts do not unmount /var/lock and /var/run when
those aren't in /etc/fstab, but created by /etc/default/rcS with RAMRUN
and RAMLOCK parameters. This happens atleast when using insserv depency
based initscripts, even with concurrency disabled. I haven't tested
old non-depency based initscripts after noticing this problem.

Unmounting mountpoints under /var results fail in unmount /var try. So
also underlying raid fails to go down nicely. Overall producting
potential dataloss.

Relevant part of /etc/default/rcS:

ps. Why reportbug didn't ask including /etc/rcS even it is relevant and
is created by initscripts package (not found by dpkg-query)? Because it
is created, but not counted in..
pps. My changed tmpfs file changes tmpfs size.
