Package: sysvinit

More likely this in an xorg problem. This happens with two different
versions of sysvinit -
2.88dsf-59.9+devuan3 and 2.91-1+devuan1

Issuing 'init 1' in a graphical session in ceres causes the computer
to hang after the desktop goes away but  before tty1 is available
again. I see the output from when xorg started.

Pressing alt-sysrq-k clears it and brings me right to a login on tty1.
It does not cylce through runlevel 1, and does not ask for password or

Using startx without a display manager.
