According to Mark Hurenkamp's comment, severity of this bug should be set to Critical.
Image your very important app got the same PID as non-existent process had.
- causes data corruption - imagine you are editing your photos and something kills your application during rewrite of a photo
- severely affects applications beyond the package responsible for the root cause - any application can be killed ("crashing") randomly

init: job stuck with expect fork/daemon when parent reaps child
Status in Upstart:
Status in “aiccu” package in Ubuntu:
Status in “upstart” package in Ubuntu:
Status in PLD Linux Distribution:
Wrong use of the expect fork stanza can create job with status
job stop/killled, process nnn
without any process nnn running on the system.
As an example the following avahi.conf should have used
"expect daemon", but will instead create a stuck job.
stop on stopping dbus-system
exec avahi-daemon -D
