Thanks. I have no idea why the ordering was wrecked previously since I 
have only used apt-get to install update things.

To fix I changed all the S* to K* as per above with K99halt and 
K99reboot. But I am not sure this is "right". K* or S* seems to be a 
matter of debate too.

I do feel I should use a "proper" tool like update-rc.d to remove and 
re-add halt/reboot.
