SUMMARY: init 0/6 doesn't work under Solaris 2.5.1

I asked why sometimes init 0/6 didn't work for me under Solaris. Kudos as
often to Casper who hit the nail on the head - there was an rc script left
over from the startup which had not quit - we recently had an application
modified so that it comes up before the login prompt. init won't switch
run levels until it has completed a previous switch of run level, and if
an rc script doesn't exit, that won't happen.

Kindest regards,
