Description piercarl 1999-06-12 14:36:49 EDT
Scripts in "/etc/rc.d/init.d" that use the 'daemon' function
may be executed in cron jobs or other offline scripts.

Unfortunately the "[OK]" style messages are _always_ wrapped
in colorification escape sequences, even if the output is
not a tty. There should be a check for tty output.

This has been forwarded to a developer for further action.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-06-17 17:38:59 EDT
fixed in initscripts-4.22, available in next rawhide...
