It's setting the runlevel to what the field next to 'initdefault' says.

Why does it need fixing? The comment in /etc/inittab says exactly what
it's for, and that's exactly what it does. Specifically, it says
that /etc/inittab is no longer used for general-purpose setup (as it was
in earlier versions), it's *only* for setting the default runlevel.
