Notice the extra space here. It appears you inadvertently hit the space
bar while you were doing something else. As a result, you had that space
in your input buffer, so when you hit enter, it was the space, rather
than the 'n', which was processed. As this script interprets everything
which is not 'n' as the default value, it bailed out.
