Some info on, and a question about breaks

Instead of bugging Bryan directly this time I thought I'd post to the list.

I've been going through the archives to see if there is an answer to my
question, and I saw a question that I can answer, so lets go ahead and get
that in the archives.

The sun alternate break sequence is "\\r~^b" (enter, ~, ^b)

Or at least that works for me - and our suns are all set to use the alternat
break sequence.

Further more I've set break2 to the "default" break sequence, that being
"\\r~\#" which is enter, ~, #. That works well.

But for when the OS is not booted, and you need to send a serial break, I

"\\z" as break3. However, since we're using an SSH tunnel to get from
conserver to the cyclade terminal servers, that just kills the SSH session and
the conserver re-establishes it.

So then I tried "\\r~\\z" but that does the same thing. How do I send a serial
break when I'm using an ssh tunnel from conserver to the cyclades?
