Yea, I just tried it again and it only took me 20 seconds to hit
something (wrong key?) and its frozen that vt, nothing works.  I tried
killing its process and it remained frozen.  Luckily, I had ssh'd in to
the box so I could kill the ssh session from the originating box.

I know, the GNU folks are in love with Ctrl-* * commands (witness info)
but why they can't give a screen like in minicom with drop-down menus or
something...
