Argh - let me echo the pain.  Think "I want to run a benchmark in single
user mode":

	root# shutdown now
	[ ... la di da di da ..., but don't really pay attention ]
	Enter pathname of shell or RETURN for sh:
	Terminal type? xterm
	# cd /usr/local
	nfs send error 50 for server balrog:/export/netbsd.pmax
	[ Oops, glad I've got ddb configured.  An fsck shouldn't take too long ]
