I am starting to think that this has nothing to do with my custom init
script but with my system as a whole. I don't see *any* output when I
shot down or reboot. Only the red "Shutting down, please wait" message,
but nothing after that. If I remove my custom init script then still no
output of any of Debian's own init script is shown.

Any ideas?
