Sorry but I'm not subscribed so I can't reply to the relevant mail, but this mail is about the ifupdown initscript issue(s) with /run.

As best I can tell, the problem(s) with the ifupdown script boil down to the fact that it's myreadlink() cannot handle nested symlinks.   However the attached simple patch seems to fix this by having myreadlink restart it's main loop again if it discovers such a nested symlink.

I decided not to post it to either of the possibly relevant existing bugs in the BTS for now (623076 & 623523) as the descriptions of both make me wonder if they refer to other problems.

I hope this helps.
