The script is included in version 1.11.0-3 of insserv now.

I promised to have a closer look at the other runlevels later.  I've
checked out at least part of your runlevel 0 now.  Checking it, I
found bugs related to incorrect headers in in acct, acpid, anacron,
spamassassin, dbus, fnfxd, hddtemp, dirmngr, hostapd, virtualbox-ose
and cron.  I did not yet check laptop-mode, exim4, laptop-net, lisa,
openbsd-inetd, vmware, iodined, sl-modem-daemon, smartmontools and
cupsys (yet).

The reported bugs can be found at
<URL: >.

I assume the shutdown order in testing will improve when all the
reported bugs are fixed and propagated into testing. :)

Happy hacking,
Petter Reinholdtsen
