Okay, so I got the specifics for ya. You can't send a serial break when using
the "ssh" portion of cyclades - and I can't find a way around that. Basically,
at an ok prompt, if I sent a \z break when the cyclades are using the telnet
server, I get:

   SC Alert: SC Request to send Break to host.

However, when using the SSH server I get:

[halt sent]


I've tried ~\z and that doesn't work... anyone know how to do that?
