'telinit u' relies on the dbus system bus
Unlike most initctl commands, 'telinit u' is implemented in such a way that it only works over the dbus system bus. Since this is a root-only command, this should not require dbus for operation, but should support connecting directly to upstart.
I discovered this issue when packaging 1.6.1 for inclusion in Debian, where the dbus package does not yet have upstart integration and so upstart is never signalled to reconnect to the system bus.
