http://bugs.debian.org/?  'apt-get install reportbug'?  "It's called
unstable for a reason"?  Poking around, there seem to be bugs against
both sysvinit and apt on this; it's unlikely that debian-user will be
able to make it work.

In general, if you're running and actively tracking unstable, you
should be willing to put up with occasional breakage like this, and
almost certainly be subscribed to debian-devel-announce (low
traffic).  You should probably be comfortable tracking down problems,
and helping the community by submitting bug reports (and possibly
including fixes).  Subscribing to debian-devel or debian-devel-changes
wouldn't be a bad idea, but both are fairly high-traffic.
