OK, I've done.

While we talk about behavior while switching runlevels, I observe an
unfortunate behavior while switching to runlevel 1 and back.

On entering runlevel 1 /etc/init.d/single is executed, which terminates
and kills all processes. This also involves processes started in runlevel
S like devfs and portmap (mountnfs.sh). If you switch back to the default
runlevel they aren't restarted, because they have their start link in S.
But so you get some trouble if you forget to restart them, e.g. with NFS
mounts (because portmap is missing) or device nodes in /dev.

Is this behavior correct?
