That's the reason the dryrun for bootscripts is aborted before executing
them. Both ways are not really optimal, but I don't want to replace one
suboptimal solution with another.
Maybe we could pass an option to the bootscript so that a script has
the chance to test for that option before booting. That would still
change the behaviour for scripts that don't test for that option, but
at least they could be fixed.
