At least regarding the ^Z behaviour you have seen it was due a
problem in sh(1) and both netbsd-8 and NetBSD -current are not
affected to that (i.e. typing `exit' or `^D' will return to sysinst
and permit to continue the installation (not restart it!)).

If you are more curious, Rocky Hotas reported it in netbsd-users@
some months ago:
