Using the F16 pxeboot install images, I see this...

EXT4-fs (dm-0) mounted filesystem with ordered data mode. Opts: (null)
Mounted root filesystem /dev/mapper/live-rw
dracut: Warning: Signal caught!
Dropping to debug shell.

ah, this is the "--loglevel=debug" kernel command line parameter, which the kernel blindly assigns to an environment variable called "--loglevel" with the value "debug". The dash shell really does not like it.

dash bug 738494
dracut bug 733674 ( seems only partially solved )
