  "initctl list" shows 11974 instances of network-interface-security
  after two days of uptime

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:
Status in “lxc” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  On an Ubuntu 12.04.1 system, each time you start and stop a container,
  "initctl status" shows two more instances of network-interface and network-interface-security running.
  The numbers do not go down after the container shuts down.
  Evidently there's an interface leak in lxc-start?

  Here's how I ran into this.
  Hosting a small number of buildbots in 
  one-shot ephemeral LXC containers,
  in which the LXC container is stop and started after each build,
  after two days of uptime, running the commands

  while true
     time initctl list | awk '{print $1}' | sort | uniq -c | sort -n | tail -n 3


        1 wait-for-state
     6003 network-interface
    11990 network-interface-security

  real    0m19.428s

        1 wait-for-state
     6004 network-interface
    11994 network-interface-security

  real    0m19.271s

  If I stop the buildbots, the numbers stop rising.

  This broke my build.

  I can work around this by rebooting every night, but I'd sure rather
