           Summary: "halt" from login prompt does not work anymore

Fix for the issue

I have the following in my /etc/passwd:


After updating from 1.23.2 to 1.26.2 this does not work anymore:

XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX login: halt
-halt: Invalid argument

Reason is that applet_name is regenerated from argv[0] after removing the
leading dash. I attach a patch that works for me...

(side note: the bugtracker is not up-to-date regading Busybox versions - it
ends at 1.24.x.)
