Well, none in particular. The automated packages from Xi are directly
and (mostly) automatically based on the official Debian packages. I
haven't modified the init scripts and therefore it is not likely that
this problem is specific to the automated packages. So, please verify
whether this (mis)behavior is also present in the official packages and
report the bug over there (don't report without verifying first!).

And, what version did you install.. v1.2 or v2.0?
