vgetty not stay running // inittab vs init

Bug #1251922 reported by Juan on 2013-11-16

mgetty (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

The man page of vgetty says:
vgetty is not meant to be run from the command line. It should be run from the /etc/inittab file so it can respawn after each call. Here is
       a typical inittab entry:

       S0:345:respawn:/usr/sbin/vgetty ttyS0

But no inittab found in Ubuntu 12.04.
So no respawn when a phone call is received.

Conclusion: Only one phone-call reception. After that, the program ends.

Please install mgetty-voice correctly.
