Yes it is the shell command. -c with su if used after user name (nullmail)
ends up being passed to the shell. So read the shell's man page for -c
instead of su's man page.
I think the reason that the -x was ignored in your earlier test was
because the sh-bang line was never used (see run_rc_script function in
Maybe you need to add the -x to /etc/rc itself.
