Yes, I also encountered these. Given that bb init doesn't do runlevels this
actually is to be expected and documented. 

I've done two different setups, one using the bb init/inittab+minimalistic
startup/kill scripts fro a lean setup and a 2nd config where I completely
replaced the bb init/halt/reboot etc stuff with full sysvinit; was fairly
easy becase it's a big* system anyway and already has glibc available.

*) big in this context means it's running off a 4MB DiskOnChip.

Bye, Martin
