Hmm, something is sending an environment change request which we don't
handle really. However, that should not be much of a problem since we
just ignore that. But it appears as is from the on we are not handling
things properly in the /dev/initctl handler.
This is probably easy to fix (just some parse error in initctl.c),
however not so much for me, since I am sysvinit-free since ages, and I
am not sure I want to install sysvinit again to make this work.
Try to use gdb on systemd-initctl and check if you can figure out where
the service chokes on the commands.
