Package: initscripts
Followup-For: Bug #623174

I had reported #623076 against initscripts.

Around same time, I notice that logcheck is complaining about lack of 
permission to create /var/lock/logcheck

 /var/lock is a symlink to /run

Is there a relation with this bug? 

I manually crated a symlink and the problems vanished. 

The errors were appearing in log2mail mails, so, I did not 
take them seriously. :-D
