Thanks for that. I will do that in the future if I come across such a
thing again. That said, I can't reproduce it anymore. After editing the
fields of xfs & rsyslog manually I could not remember what I had in
there in first place. So I disabled the scripts, purged xfs, rsyslog and
installed it again together with initscripts (with --reinstall). After
that everything works fine unfortunately. I've compared the control
fields of the initscripts with those in my bug report and they are the

I've decreased the severity since I can't reproduce it anymore. Feel
free to close the bug.
