I think your right there.  My "fix" does fix something else though.
It fixes reboot when in initrd, which doesn't work without
the fix.

I'll post a bugreport against busybox.

I mixed up the two bugs in my mind cause they both disappeared at the
same time for me, prob. when the new sysvinit came out and I started using
my patched busybox.
