System: NetBSD 5.99.45 NetBSD 5.99.45 (XEN3_DOMU) #2: Fri Feb 11

Architecture: amd64
Machine: amd64
        on at last 2 -current installation, I noticed these small annoyances:
- ^T doesn't seem to make it to the process being run (for utilities with
  a SIGINFO handler), or its status is not reported back to the console.
  For example, the tty prints that fsck_ffs is being run, but I never
  see the fsck_ffs progress status on the tty.
- some rc.d scripts prints (with echo -n) a message before
  starting a command which can take some times, and then
  print "done." One example is rc.d/quota, which prints
  Checking quotas: done.
  with quotacheck -a being actually run between "Checking quotas: " and
  "done.". Now the whole line is printed at once, after \n has been
  received on the pipe. The effect is that the user sees the boot
  hang, and doesn't know why.
        have a non-WAPBL+quota system do an unclean reboot, watch it boot.
