Interesting idea, but no, that works fine. Annoyingly!

So, I naiively tried to do this by simply sticking a '2> /tmp/waagent.stderr'
on the end of the rc.d command arguments, but it didnt produce anything (i.e.
an empty file was created). Will try some other ways though, as you are
right that getting the output from that is how to find the issue.
