This has just happened on a second machine.  Process 1 seems to have the 
command-line "init boot" and the system startup scripts are running.  As some 
of the daemons are already running one of the startup scripts hangs and then 
init doesn't get to reap defunct processes or remove the /etc/nologin file it 

I still don't know which package caused this or why.
