Re: DO NOT UPGRADE UNSTABLE: Terminal text stops functioning

Upon standard bootup into a terminal it appears that output ceases before
the INIT: Entering Runlevel : 2 message but will start up again if the
kernel sends a message to the terminal.

This could explain how you were still able to see the login. I suspect if
you look harder at your terminal output you will see some of it is
missing. You could be fortunate that a kernel message restarted the
terminal output. On my third system output had also fully ceased in single 
user mode just like the rest. But when booting normally it restarted after
a while when the parport module produced output.

Perhaps one of the upgraded scripts contains an XOFF (CTRL-S) character
