I suspect this bug (which is tagged pending) was supposed to be closed
by one of these uploads.  Roger, do you remember?

sysvinit (2.88dsf-39) unstable; urgency=low

  [ Roger Leigh ]:
  * initscripts postinst calls urandom, not urandom.sh (Closes: #698966).
  * sysvinit postinst unconditionally creates a compatibility initctl
    link to ensure the migration to /run won't fail (Closes: #663009).

sysvinit (2.88dsf-29) unstable; urgency=low

  [ Steve Langasek ]
  * initscripts:
    - Improve /dev/shm to /run/shm upgrade handling in the postinst
      (improvement for #674178).

  [ Roger Leigh ]
  * initscripts:
    - Remove /lib/init/rw if possible.  Closes: #679612.
    - If /run is a symlink to /var/run, correct this on both upgrade
      and on boot.  On upgrade, the proper /run migration will occur
      on reboot.  On boot, the system will require rebooting to fully
      migrate /run to a working configuration (but this will only
      occur on systems which are already broken, it's not an upgrade
      path).  This correct problems with udev breakage due to /run
      being mounted twice when /run is a symlink.
      Closes: #677097, #679523.
    - Start urandom on initial install, so that a random seed exists on
      first boot.  Closes: #679972.
    - Restore creation of /var/log/dmesg (Closes: #681639).
  * sysv-rc:
    Remove unused debconf logic in postinst.

Happy hacking
