The dbus init scripts _are_ subscripts of sysvinit scripts.
Policy describes how system daemons should be started only through the
use of invoke-rc.d, and the dbus subscripts are in fact started that way.
hal restarts one of those subscripts directly, which causes problems for
systems relying on policy-rc.d.
I agree that it is problematic, and I do not claim to have a solution.
But that does not change the severity of this bug.
As I wrote, I believe it makes sense to ignore this bug for the upcoming
release. But it is wrong to lower severity!
CC'ed debian-release to have a third opinion.
