Yes, but if I am not wrong, init doesn't use the utmp record to find that a
process has to be killed, but some information in memory.

I checked, it seems that I don't have any utmp accounting, as I have nothing 
in /var/run and most of the filesystem is read-only (except /tmp and 
some files/dir linked to /tmp, like /var). 

(init cannot initialize utmp as there is no /var/run directory, only /var. 
The /var/run directory is created afterwards by a rc script...)
 
Of course the runlevel command returns "unknown"...
