Subject: Potota install writes to the wrong console
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

Package: Boot Disks
Version: potato, March 29, 2000 release

I was loading kernel modules and switching to the alternate console do
mount a disk.  Detecting the available modules takes a long time so I
switched screens while the install program scanned for them.  Then, the
install screen drew itself on the current console (F2) instead of the F1
console.  I switched to the F1 console and pressed enter and it selected
the EXIT option as expected even though the screen was incorrect.

I'm installing potato on an old IBM thinkpad.  I don't know if it would
be different on other machines.

tausq told me that the bug is fixed already.  Maybe that was the
reason why I could not reproduce it... Darn!  Spent too much time
in building a test environment.
