An example: Only in runlevel 3 (the default) xdm and aumix (or alsa) is
started. If you leave this runlevel both should be stopped. aumix can save
the last volume levels and mutes all channels, after this. If you switch
form runlevel 3 to runlevel 2, aumix saves its settings and mute the
channels. A second stop-call at shutdown would lead to save the muted
config. aumix can't decide if it has muted the channels before or if this
is the last user config.

I think, init should only stop scripts if they run.
