Actually it is.

SAK should kill everything that has the tty open. If init opens the tty
I am so sorry, it can not operate correctly. init should not have your
tty open.

The alternative and perhaps the better option is to simply remove SAK
support, if we can not make it race free.

But yes SAK very much does care about races.
