similar behavior at boot, at least since test11, to wit: at boot:
prompt, hitting tab causes what seems to be several pages of
scrolling with the odd character here and there, in place of a list
of available boot options. after several seconds, boot: prompt
reappears as usual, and one may, if one has remembered their names,
type in any of the possibilities, and boot that choice.

bipartisanship: an illogical construct not unlike the idea that
if half the people like red and half the people like blue, the 
country's favorite color is purple.
