I have always used init, so I looked it up, here is a snippet from "man
telinit"

"The  init binary checks if it is init or telinit by looking at its pro-
cess id; the real init's process id is always 1.  From this it  follows
that instead of calling telinit one can also just use init instead as a
shortcut."

So "telinit 3" is the correct way, but init works also. One learn new
things everyday... :-)
