When you say spin out, do you mean it's fully loading a core? That
would obviously be a bug, but I don't see that. For me, both with
ESC-; and Shift-F12 it's just sitting there waiting for more input,
which to me looks like normal operation because I do know that the
escape character at the start of both of those takes vi into command
mode and I've got no idea what either ';' or '[24;2~' might mean in
command mode. In both cases, pressing Enter a couple of time produces
a new prompt.
