In a slightly related topic..

What would be cool is a fix for the following REALLY ANNOYING bug.
When you are running sysinstall from a running system and you get an error,
it says
"look in the other vty for the reason of the problem" (or words to that 

but of course running from an already up system htere IS no other vty..
so it is impossible to find what was wrong.
In the case of running on an already up system maybe that stream
could be sent to a log file somewhere?

I hit this quite often.. in partuicular when instlling a package that 
has an
earlier version already installed..

it just fails and you can't find out why.
