I have in my fluxbox (1.0.0rc3) menu config file a menu item which executes the exact (erroneous) command "emacs -nw --no-splash". When I click this item, nothing happens. I open up a terminal, and my PC starts beeping. I press one key, and the terminal outputs that key many times. If I open up an editor, the key is outputted there many times, also, in a seemingly infinite loop. Unfortunately, I am unable to read dmesg. The only thing I am able to do is do a hard reboot. The keyboard is rendered useless and the mouse is the only thing usable.

fluxbox is a package, move to pkg category.
