Downgraded to important, as it doesn't break anything but gnukhata.  If this
turns out to be false and the problem is generalized, feel free to upgrade
the severity to "grave".

You are a DD and expected to know better.  Do not abuse the critical
severity level.

If the initscript hangs, this is most likely a bug on the
gnukhata-core-engine initscript or in the daemon, and not on sysvinit

sysv initscripts MUST NEVER HANG.  They cannot block for too long either.
