I managed to crash my system playing around with esd and on the
re-boot I noticed an odd err concerning /etc/init.d/rcS:
for i in /etc/rcS.d/S??*
# Ignore dangling symlinks for now.
[ ! -f "$i" ] && continue
case "$i" in
# Source shell script for speed.
trap - INT QUIT TSTP
# No sh extension, so fork subprocess.
some of /etc/rcS.d/

As soon as it finishes mountall.sh, it tries dns-clean, which causes a
SEGFAULT, and displays the line with "$i start" from above.
It runs hostname.sh correctly. In fact, it all runs fine except
dns-clean and ifupdown and this happens on a regular basis; this has
the unfortunate side-effect of making the networking sub-system think
that the interfaces are up later on during the boot sequence when they
are truly not up.
Any ideas on what might be causing this?
Thank you, Elizabeth
