Are you suggesting that the behaviour is appropriate? That dropping the
serial console once you get to a prompt somehow makes sense?
I'm not going to get into a nerd-slapping fight / cock-size contest over
this. Getting defensive and sanctimonious every time a bug is reported is
counterproductive. It's just a bug report. It's not a commentary on
anyone's worth as a developer or human being. It's simply a problem that
should be fixed, because it doesn't make any sense the way it is now.
Either this project is committed to quality or it isn't. Frankly I don't
care which it is. I'm not going to fight about it every time I file a PR.
