Interesting idea Davide
according to pstree, init is indeed still present, top of the list in fact:

OTOH, I have NDI if that is normal.  It is also sitting there in an htop 
screen showing "init(3)" which I assume is the runlevel.  I'll pepper the 
last S## before that and see if its hung, and the top of rc.local, but that 
doesn't show anyplace, and if I run it by hand, it does everything and exits 
cleanly.

Many thanks for the hint.
