Bug#638068: old busybox
 
I don't know if this is the same problem. I installed a new
kernel (linux-image-3.1.0-1-amd64) which would not finish booting
because the initramfs image was unusable. It turned out that
upgrading busybox from 1:1.1.3-3 to 1:1.19.3-4 enabled
initramfs-tools to construct a working boot image. Probably
initramfs-tools should depend on a later version of busybox
than 1:1.01-3.

Please don't ask us to support etch, as hysterical laughing
may offend.

I think we should remove the versioned dependency altogether;
packages in testing/unstable may assume that their dependencies
are at least as new as stable.
