Visibility: error

The given init script seems to refer to /var, possibly using a file from there. Without a dependency on $local_fs in Required-Start or Required-Stop, as appropriate, the init script might be run before /var is mounted or after it's unmounted.

Using Should-Start or Should-Stop to declare the dependency is conceptually incorrect since the $local_fs facility is always available. Required-Start or Required-Stop should be used instead.
