mouse in serial corrupts boot loaders
I have a mouse plugged into my serial. (The mouse works with moused
and provides a working sysmouse for X11 on DragonFly.)
1) I rebooted and got:
0:ad(0,a)/boot/locader: (garbage characters here)
I pressed enter and it said "No (garbage)"
Pressing "?" gives file and directory list.
2) Booting from LiveCD
The "Welcome to DragonFly" menu didn't count down but kept flashing "10".
Then a three seconds later:
Error: stack overflow
Hit [Enter] to boot immediately, or ...
then when to OK automatically.
I could type commands, but no results, just came back to:
Notice extra spaces after OK above.
(I have seen two "bug tracking" webpages and this mailing list. If you
want me to report somewhere else, please let me know.)
Unplugging mouse and typing "boot" does work.
