/usr/local/etc/rc.d running twice.

I don't know precisely when it happened, but I recently cvsup'd to
-CURRENT, made a kernel and world, and then ran mergemaster ...

... and /usr/local/etc/rc.d runs twice at bootup.  Certain things that
create pid files (like postgresql) fail the second time their script
is run, but other things (like faxd and faxq form hylafax) end up with
two copies running.

I've investigated, and the scripts in question require a 'start'
argument before they do anything.

Is this known?  Is there a fix for this?
