Let me speculate - I must speculate because I didn't have the time to
look deeper in the system: the ttys aren't completely initialized but
but it is "told" to every other startup script which waits on ttys that
it everything is initialized.

No there is no wrong thing. Let me say: under UNIX we have the great
chance to find for one problem many solutions which all work.
I hope the new and the old rc-system will coexist a long time.
I my eyes the new rc-system has a great disadvantage: If you want to
test a new daemon-process you either have to restart the operating
system or you have to set all variables on the command line and then you
can test the daemon.
