i doubt the cs9000's are the problem.  i personally don't have an
alt-break setup to test with, but my best guess is that there needs to
be a 0.5 second delay between each character for this to work.  at
least, that's the info i'm seeing at sunsolve.  there is no delay in
the code.  so, the big test is, can you type <cr>,~,<ctrl-b> by hand
during a console session and get a machine to halt?  if so, it's
probably the delay issue.  unfortunately, there is no way to fix this
without some code changes.  but, if typing the sequence by hand doesn't
work either, something else is going on.  lemme know how it goes with
the test (it'll prove we *really* need that delay capability).
