Back before the great rc.d splitup, if you typed a ^C when fsck was
checking the disks, it would drop into single-user mode.
On the 2.0 machines I'm now working with, if I type ^C while fsck is
checking the disks (if, of course, it *does* check the disks), instead
of dropping to single user it continues with multi-user startup.
This seems...wrong. Is this just yet another way in which NetBSD and I
disagree as to what's right, or is this not how it is supposed to work?
In case it matters, it's on i386 that I noticed this. I haven't tried
it on any other ports.
