Although you appear to have found the reason for this, here's a
hint for how to get a tiny bit more info:

It sounds like some program is unexpectedly exiting, which might
be due to a signal delivery.  If you manage to put


in /etc/sysctl.conf (and boot multi-user, or enable it by hand),
you'll get such exits logged to the console, at least.
