Package: initscripts
Version: 2.88dsf-34
Severity: critical
Justification: breaks the whole system

Dear Maintainer,

after an update, I got the error message Init: job_process_handler ignored event 1 .... on three different system.
But I´m not really shure if the problem is in initscripts or an other package.

One (this here) i386 , two amd64 - all Debian testing. One of the amd64 is brand new after a Netinstall. Then I made 
an update and got the error (boot stops).
i386:  upstart 0.6.6-2
amd64: upstart 0.6.6-2
amd64 (brand new): sysvinit

here´s the aptitude log of the update (brand new system):
[AKTUALISIERUNG] initscripts:amd64 2.88dsf-32 -> 2.88dsf-34
[AKTUALISIERUNG] klibc-utils:amd64 2.0.1-3 -> 2.0.1-3.1
[AKTUALISIERUNG] libc-bin:amd64 2.13-35 -> 2.13-37
[AKTUALISIERUNG] libc6:amd64 2.13-35 -> 2.13-37
[AKTUALISIERUNG] libgnutls26:amd64 2.12.20-1 -> 2.12.20-2

[AKTUALISIERUNG] libusb-0.1-4:amd64 2:0.1.12-20 -> 2:0.1.12-20+nmu1
[AKTUALISIERUNG] locales:amd64 2.13-35 -> 2.13-37
[AKTUALISIERUNG] multiarch-support:amd64 2.13-35 -> 2.13-37
[AKTUALISIERUNG] sysv-rc:amd64 2.88dsf-32 -> 2.88dsf-34
[AKTUALISIERUNG] sysvinit:amd64 2.88dsf-32 -> 2.88dsf-34
[AKTUALISIERUNG] sysvinit-utils:amd64 2.88dsf-32 -> 2.88dsf-34
[AKTUALISIERUNG] xz-utils:amd64 5.1.1alpha+20120614-1 -> 5.1.1alpha+20120614-2

My workaround is: update the systems to upstart upstart 1.6.x  

Please let me know if you need additonal information. I´ve also got an other system (upstart 0.6.6-2) which I can "kill".

Best regards
