On sun systems with serial console, send a break signal will put your
system in the openboot monitor the same as L1-a on a console keyboard.
Unfortunatly, disconnecting a terminal can be interpreted as break.

Some versions of openboot have a command to disable this behavior.
(I don't remember what it is, try help and the openboot prompt.)

With Microsoft, failure is not an option.  It is a standard feature.
