hald doesn't start on boot...

Dear all,

I'm having a problem with hald.

I have the following in my rc.conf:


and I see a "starting hald" message on boot, with seemingly no errors. Yet afterwards hald is not running - but if I then run

/usr/local/etc/rc.d/hald start

hald starts without complaint, no messages, no problems. So why won't it start at boot?

This is on 8.1-RELEASE.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to track down what the problem is, and fix it?
