Initscripts ending with .sh was indeed a case handled by the
sysv-generator from the beginning. I think that fixing this specific
issue makes sense and the patch (in the other email) looks pretty
simple to me.

Thanks for writing all these tests Martin. The bugs found in the
generator are embarrassing and in hindsight I should have tested this
more thoroughly on a debian system instead of just fedora. I look
forward to all your tests of this. Let me know if I can help out with
extending the test cases or anything.
