In Debian Installer we're seeing a regression in pidof. For certain
processes it no longer returns the PID.

# ps ax | grep [d]ebian-installer
  452 root       1408 S   /bin/sh /sbin/debian-installer
 5594 root       1964 S   /bin/sh /sbin/debian-installer /bin/network-console-m
 5641 root       1964 S   /bin/sh /sbin/debian-installer /bin/network-console-m
# pidof debian-installer

With busybox 1.3.x the pidof command would return the PIDs:
# pidof debian-installer
452 5594 5641

The first of these processes is started from /etc/inittab:
::respawn:/bin/cttyhack /sbin/debian-installer

The second and third are started from an ssh connection to the system:
# cat /etc/passwd
# cat /bin/network-console
set -e
exec /sbin/debian-installer /bin/network-console-menu
