Stock 1.5 release
ddb.fromconsole is enabled by default, and can cause problems when 
running a headless server using an occasionally powered PC as a 
Powering down the PC sometimes sends a spurious break, having the
same impact as a crash! (I.e. unexpected loss of service).


Either change default setting, or dcoument in FAQ.  (I thought that the
kernel was panicing until I did some digging).
