Still a fool, but a little less of one.

Also, the screen goes to black after the first dot of the pretty boot comes
up - (the o> first dot, not the initial ox first dot.) Not at the end of a
pretty boot as previously stated.

Also 'restart' from sugar also seems to hang up for a minute in
text-console land before completely executing.
