I was hit by this:

install poudriere, forgot to install pkgng (yes it is documented...).
Run poudriere bulk, it will be stuck waiting an user input (it does
not output anything too) and it closes the poudriere jail juste after a
key is pressed.

I've spent sometime to understand why pkg was waiting on the "tty"
wchan... So yes this is confusing IMO.
