One other thing to add... I moved the script from /usr/local/etc/rc.d/
to /etc/rc.d/ and it works perfectly. Didn't change a thing other than
where the script is running from. All my rc scripts in /etc are also
unmodified.

Is it really the case that no one has seen something like this before?
Why would a script run from one location, but not from another?
Especially given the fact that other scripts in /usr/local/etc/rc.d
are being executed normally.
