Just an annoyance, but it's ugly. Whereas the boot sequence used to finish with something like:

This is host.domain

...it now finishes with:

This is host.





domain

...with a bunch of unnecessary blank lines inserted. Any idea where they might be coming from? /etc/issue looks fine, as does /etc/hosts...and I can't remember editing anything in /etc since it used to work properly. It looks to me as though something running in parallel is spewing blank lines onto the console, but it always happens right there between the host and domain names. I may have some init scripts incorrectly assigned (to the wrong runlevels). This is my rc-update:
Code:
             bootmisc | boot                         
           consolekit |      default                 
                devfs |                       sysinit
                dmesg |                       sysinit
                 fsck | boot                         
             hostname | boot                         
              hwclock | boot                         
              keymaps | boot                         
            killprocs |              shutdown       
                local |      default                 
           localmount | boot                         
              modules | boot                         
             mount-ro |              shutdown       
                 mtab | boot                         
             net.eth0 |      default                 
               net.lo | boot                         
             netmount |      default                 
               procfs | boot                         
                 root | boot                         
            savecache |              shutdown       
                 swap | boot                         
            swapfiles | boot                         
               sysctl | boot                         
                sysfs |                       sysinit
         termencoding | boot                         
       tmpfiles.setup | boot                         
                 udev |                       sysinit
           udev-mount |                       sysinit
              urandom | boot
