I'm a little confused, did you use the init installed by SystemV and
write/adapt your own scripts ? Seems like a lot of complexity.

I used Free-BSD for a while and found the init scripts to be alien
after SysV.

If you think it an error in the basic install, it's pretty easy to back
up your system as is if you have partionable space left . I do this 
often and I can clone an os and boot the clone in a few minutes. Then 
you could modify the clone to "Book"  and see if the problem is due to
your modifications or an install problem.
