Package: bootlogd
Version: 2.88dsf-34
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,
i've installed the package and at the next reboot the system stopped the
bootprocess with:

[ ok ] Setting parameters of disc: (none).

if i press strg+c on the serial console the bootprocess run's again ...
first following message is
... activating swap.

if i change the kernel cmdline to start withou serial console booting
runs without errors.
normally i use the following cmdline for the kernel:
(console=tty0 console=ttyS0,57600n8)
changed to (console=tty0) works, but i need the serial line.
If i remove/purge bootlogd booting runs without errors.

the archived Bug #522211 describes the same problem.

i think it's an critical bug.
