I want to have a look at the states transitions using the method described here: http://upstart.ubuntu.com/cookbook/#viewing-state-transitions.

This is what I do:

# initctl log-priority debug
# initctl stop tty1 
# initctl start tty1 

But I cannot see anything related to tty1 in the file /var/log/syslog.
