Fake start-stop-daemon called, doing nothing--Wha???

	I've just installed Debian this past weekend, but I seem to have quite
a few problems getting things to run right.  The common thread seems to
be the following:

>I try to run that command, but get an error:
>  Warning: Fake start-stop-daemon called, doing nothing

	I cannot get my printer set up...I keep getting this error.

	Every time I shutdown (init 0 *or* shutdown -h now) I get a screen
full--and I have to shut off the system which, of course, forces a fsck
check at next boot up (at ~80 Gigs, quite a chunk of time)

	It happens at other inconvenient times as well.  Including boot up
where various daemons are supposed to be starting but don't, giving me
the error message.

	How do I fix it??????
