This is an intermittent bug, but this is what syslog shows when the system gets
in this state:

   or: function [arguments]...

        BusyBox is a multi-call binary that combines many common Unix
        utilities into a single executable.  Most people will create a
        link to busybox for each function they wish to use and BusyBox
        will act like whatever it was invoked as.

Currently defined functions:
        adjtimex, clear, cmp, dos2unix, eject, free, iostat, mesg, mktemp,
        mpstat, nc, nmeter, nslookup, pipe_progress, reset, run-parts,
        setconsole, start-stop-daemon, stat, strings, telnetd, time,
        traceroute, unix2dos, uudecode, uuencode, which

This is how busybox is configured.
# grep -i telnetd config

telnetd is started from /etc/init.d like so:

 /usr/sbin/telnetd -l /bin/login

Any ideas what could be the root cause of this? Googling turns up lots noise
but  nothing that looks like this issue.
