OpenSSH's sshd does not parse /etc/default/init, so unless your shell 
does then you won't see them.

I don't know what normally parses it on Solaris, but if it's a PAM 
module then enabling PAM might help.

     Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
