Bug#1208: dpkg IOT
When installing sysvinit, I got a prompt about how /etc/init.d/boot
had been editted changed, and what did I want to do about it. Since I
hadn't editted this file, I backgrounded dpkg (Z option) and took a
look. The change was that my system clock wasn't GMT (no -u option to
clock or somesuch). Also, there were several lines in the new boot
file about a compat script.
So, I copied the new file over top the original, editted it to taste,
then restarted dpkg (fg). dpkg responded by repeating the prompt,
then terminated with: IOT trap/Abort.
I don't think it was supposed to do this.
