The workaround is the following addition to the project config:
%if "%_repository" == "xUbuntu_12.10"
Workarund in action:
It would be nice, if the global OBS config for Ubuntu 12.10 could be fixed.

x11-common simply manages a initscript via update-rc.d - the bug is inside update-rc.d
(part of sysv-rc package).
update-rc.d checks, if /etc/init.d/.legacy-bootordering is present. If yes, it changes
the etc directory itself, else it calls

Ensuring, that there is a /etc/init.d/.legacy-bootordering after sysv-rc is installed and
configured, should solve the problem.
I don't fully understand the OBS bootstrap nor have I tried to reproduce the
bootstrap, but in my option the problem
is caused by the fact, that passwd on 12.10 got a depenendency to upstart added. So
initscripts/sysv-rc.d are installed
in the first phase (--prepare) - according to the build logs (and the project config),
it's postinst are not started.
So in my option, OBS could add a workaround to create a /etc/init.d/.legacy-bootordering
after finishing prepare.
Running the initscripts of sysc-rc.d/initscripts could also be an option.
