I have not done that, but as it happened again today after
i manually have changed the runlevel, i saw that OpenRC seems to
falsely unroll the hierarchy, at least from looking at the

I have default->net->wlan->wlan-up, the latter only with ntp
running, and once i switched from wlan-up->default, all services
from wlan where shut down before the ntp of wlan-up.
I do not know how this could cause the problems, but the
behaviour seems very wrong to me.
What do you think, should i open an AlpineLinux bug??
(I have not github account, which is why i am asking.)

Ciao, Phil,
