| I believe this is related to file descriptor redirection.
| The menu option to run a shell seem to behave in a similar way, being
| executed and accepting input but not displaying any output.
| When looking in /proc/#/fd/, I notice that fd 0, 1 and 2 are all
| pointing to /dev/console, while fd 4 and 7 are pointing to a pipe, fd
| 4 and 5 are pointing to /dev/pty/s0, fd 6 is pointing to /dev/tty and
| fd 8 is pointing to the disk being partitioned.
| Changing /usr/share/partitioner/common.sh to redirect stdout to
| /dev/tty solved the problem.  I replaced "cfdisk $DISK" with "cfdisk
| $DISK > /dev/tty".  I'm not sure why this worked.

can someone please test this? I'm currently to bussy in RL to test this.
Maybe we must include these changes in the other scripts also?
