I don't see how that could happen; like most C functions, inform()
always returns to its caller.  (Unless something catastrophic happens,
in which case the entire program will exit.)

Note that the config_var_set doesn't cause it to be written to
/etc/rc.conf immediately; everything is written in one shot when you
finish configuring the system (effectively, whenever you return to the
main menu.)
