Yes, the exact same thing happened to me, apparently because 2.1.13
does not understand the "#!/usr/sbin/perl --" line in the script.  No
script which gives an argument to its processor works with that

Miraculously, almost everything will work normally if you change the
line to "#!/usr/bin/perl".  Seems like start-stop-daemon is the only
key script that gives arguments to its processor.

This is the first 2.1 kernel I've tried, so I don't know if its a bug
or a feature.  (Its startup messages mentioned being POSIX-certified,
mabye things like "#!/usr/bin/perl -w" and "#!/usr/bin/make -f" are
unsupported now?)
