I had a machine that barfed in the middle of an update because of networking issues. I said to my self, "no problem, I'll just log in on VT1 and fix it". Except every time it tried to run c-l-c's postinst, it died, because "initctl stop tty1" kills my shell which is running it. I had to start up ssh, log in there, and run dpkg --configure -a. Admittedly, this is unlikely to happen in the wild, but it's still dumb.
