I'm not convinced that is the case here.  I couldn't figure out why the
services were not starting via SMF although I could start them manually
with no errors whatsovever, *until* I restarted manifest-import, and
then suddenly the services not only worked again but auto-started.

It really seemed as though after reboot, SMF was trying to start the
Bacula services using the wrong service definition somehow.
