Default Bad chkconfig problem; how to reset all services to package defaults

On an Ubuntu 9.1 system, I had the problem that incoming ssh
connections were slow to recognize users. I found plenty of people
with similar troubles on the net and several people said that the fix
was to turn off avahi-daemon. They were correct, if you turn that
off, then ssh connections are fast.

However, I found out that after turning off avahi, well, lots of other
stuff did not work, like printing. Some printers are networked, so I
suppose that they were found by avahi components.

So I try to re-enable avahi. Look what disaster befalls me. (see
output [[[[MY DISASTER]]]] below). I find a *few* people posting
about this same chkconfig problem, but I don't find anybody who has a
fix.

Wading through HOWTOs and man pages, I feel I'm kinda caught hell
between SYSV and upstart; they try to interoperate. I've found a gui
configurator in Ubuntuland called "sysv-rc-conf", but I have very
little faith in it. It doesn't every ask "so you want to save these
settings?" Both chkconfig and sysv-rc-conf report that the dbus and
hal are not ON, and that doesn't make sense to me. I don't see how
anything at all can work if those aren't running.

I really wish I could just reset all the runlevels to the default
levels. Is there a way? update-rcconf-guide seems to write out a
default configuration, but I can't figure how to make rcconf apply it.

Then there's this:

$ sudo update-rc.d avahi-daemon defaults
update-rc.d: warning: /etc/init.d/avahi-daemon missing LSB information
update-rc.d: see <http://wiki.debian.org/LSBInitScripts>
System start/stop links for /etc/init.d/avahi-daemon already exist.

I would be very grateful for a pointer.
