Anyone sitting at the keyboard holding a key down?

I ran into a really annoying bug in the latest Dell DRAC cards
for example which caused the management card to spew crap onto
the console causing the grub boot loader to hang at the menu
screen(as if someone hit a key to cancel the timeout). Lots of
other side effects to that bug as well(on a couple of occasions
would have almost everything get zombied out until I rebooted
the management card which cleared it up).
