Rebooting will not normally cause the problem, only actually powering
down, and it is somewhat hardware dependant.  (If your terminal acts
as an open circuit when unpowered, it will not cause this problem.)

Some sparc models can be set to ignore break on the serial console.
(This may also depend on openboot version.)
