In concurrent boot, startpar executes all boot scripts and should not be
interrupted by CTRL^C. This was a cheap way to avoid CTRL^C during boot
from being different from lenny -> squeeze with concurrent boot.

Upstream startpar contains improved signal handling code but that is hard
to separate for a clean patch for squeeze sysvinit.

What I'll do is revert that commit you question since it hasn't proven to be
effective for others and I'm not able to see a better fix through at this time.
