Let's see whether I can tell you it works fine at my next test ;-)

good to know for the next time. will you realize debugging as a module
or compile time option, so one can easily remove it?

Sorry, no x86 right here, which I could use for testing.

But what you describe is different from what I mean:
I simply mean grub does _not_ cleanup the screen before it prints,
so partly the old message from yaboot's first stage is still there.

When using tab-expansion, I didn't noticed (nor did I pay attention to)
any screen garbage.


Keep it simple & stupid, use what's available.
