comment Is sed run as a different user?
@roaima Great observation! I can't, even manually, create new files in /etc. However everything is mounted with rw. Peculiarly /etc/shadow isn't a symlink. But that's a different issue, you've answered my question. :)

comment Run shell scripts with -x for debugging system v boot
Updated the question. Seems like busybox implementation depends on the shortcut name. If its not sh busybox doesn't know how to interpret it.

comment Bash substitution with variable defined from a glob pattern
Thanks for the explanation. Managed to do a workaround with FILEPATH_WITH_GLOB=`echo /home/user/file_*` after your explanation.

comment When a process forks is its virtual or resident memory copied?
If enough is available the kernel will commit to the full virtual size of the parent for both processes after the fork. Yes, thank you. Meaning that reducing the virtual footprint of the process in a environment with limited memory (RAM and swap) could solve the issue of not being able to fork.
