It is. And it has hopefully been addressed by Miquel van Smoorenburg
(thanks Miquel). Less than five hours from report to new packages being
sysvinit (2.85-6) unstable; urgency=high
* When bootlogd gets an error writing to the real console, try
to re-open. If that fails, roll over and die (closes: #202382)
Why should bootlogd get an error writing to the real console? What's the
significance of this?
I'm pleased this didn't result from carelessness. Miquel writes on #202382
that he had "thoroughly tested it" [bootlogd]. It's not worthy of
comparison with the 2001 PAM login bug.
