No, this is not true. You are probably thinking of "update-rc.d <service> remove", which simply removes the start symlinks, wheres disable renames them from S?? to K??. This change is preserved during upgrades and invoke-rc.d correctly handles such services and does't try to start them when disabled this way. -- Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the universe are pointed away from Earth?
