[Pkg-sysvinit-devel] Bug#663009: happens on all upgrades

Control: found -1 2.88dsf-34
Control: severity -1 serious

I upgraded several machines in the last days and _every_ one failed to
reboot after that:

| # reboot
| Broadcast message from root at s1 (pts/23) (Wed Jan 16 20:07:09 2013):
| The system is going down for reboot NOW!
| shutdown: timeout opening/writing control channel /run/initctl
| init: timeout opening/writing control channel /run/initctl

Adding a symlink from /dev/initctl to /run/initctl makes reboot work


... bacteriological warfare ... hard to believe we were once foolish
enough to play around with that.
