As I understand it, there existed a undocumented bug in the Netra OBP that
did not allow the alternate break to be set correctly. I am uncertain
which rev of the OBP patch fixed it, but all of our netra devices are
flashed with both the stdalone and system OBP flash files (patch 108620-04
and 108673-02 respectively), and all respond to the ~^B sequence. This has
been tested with a direct connection to serial B on another sun (E4500)
and through the conserver with the netra attached to a Digi PSCM32 console

Try upgrading your OBP.

Remember though, the alternate break mapping isnt consulted until part way
through the boot sequence, so ~# should be used during memory test or very
early in the boot cycle.
