Description csquare 2000-04-13 20:57:14 UTC
I was trying to track which scripts were getting run to track a problem. I
inserted an echo into rc.sysinit so I could see on the terminal when and if
a script was run.  I put in something like echo "in_2_sysinit".  A few
boots later I set smbd to run with the level editor in the control panel.
Smbd did not run so I checked rc.d to see what was setup.  A link should
have been made named K35smb in rc3.d.  The file that was there was
Kin_2_sysinit35smb.  The echo got inserted into the filename created for
the link.  The same thing happened for the file 91 something and also in
K35smb in rc5.d.

Debug should always be echoed to stderr, IMHO.

(echo "in_2_sysinit" 1>&2)

Still, it must be a bug.

I could never reproduce this here.
