Yes, I did as well - I conjecture that the postinstall script of
initscripts barfed, and thus the old inittab had been moved, but the new
one not put into place. At least it isn't hard to fix *if* you know how
to boot into single user mode from grub, remount root as read/write, and
rename the file - in other words, a major disaster for a newbie, a minor
hassle for an old pro.
I had a report on this issue from one of the testers.
