I seem to recall seeing that before, delete the commented-out line.
In order to comment out a line in inttab, you need to use a semicolon, rather than a pound sign.
To clarify...the reason that this didn't work, in the first place, is that the initial initdefault line wasn't truly commented out, due to the pound sign instead of the semicolon.

After that, the init processing for an entry stops on the first match...since the "not properly commented" entry was first, it got matched, and runlevel 5 was how the system came up.
