  1. Bug#498029: busybox - Applet fallback code breaks partial upgrades

    Package: busybox
    Version: 1:1.10.2-1
    Severity: important

    Some initramfs-creating packages in etch, namely mdadm, needs long
    options for some tools. As busybox currently prefers the klibc
    executable, it just fails.

    Solution: again prefer applets _and_ make sure that real executable are
    used if busybox can't execute itself. Hope this does not break
    additional things.
