Really? To the point that switching to another console wouldn't
work even? I'd think a simple Ctrl+D from within the offending
console would take care of the problem after a crashed program,
as you'd likely be back in the shell, unless it's effing with a
newly booted program. Maybe I just got used to the reset swith
on the old Commodore-64.
