You're using 1.6.x, which means that you're using the ARCS console.  ARCS
console will abort the running program (i.e., drop back into the prom) when
certain keystrokes are pressed.

2.0 will ship with a real, full-screen console mode that does not have this
problem.  Further, there is rudimentary X support for the newport graphic
board found in most Indys.

I'll make a 2.0 snapshot available later today -- based on the date, the latest
releng build probably still has the setcontext() problem.
