maintainer-script-calls-init-script-directly

This script apparently runs an init script directly rather than using invoke-rc.d. The use of invoke-rc.d to invoke the /etc/init.d/* initscripts instead of calling them directly is required. Maintainer scripts may call the init script directly only if invoke-rc.d is not available.

For more information please consult:
