You're right.  Sorry for my heavy-handed response before.

Would there be any easy way to get a list of affected packages?
By grepping for ENABLE and DISABLE in /etc/init.d and looking at the
context, I find the following packages have this problem in my local
(pretty small) installation:

  aiccu 20070115-14.1
  bootlogd from initscripts 2.88dsf-22
  rsync 3.0.9-1
