Thanks, Bruce.  Before I close this, I'd like a shout out from anyone using
either VirtualBox or jhalfs as I suspect one or the other is the cause of
this issue.  They're the only things I can think of that may affect stty like
this.  Bruce, as you'll be using jhalfs to tackle the build-logs issue, it'd
be interesting to see if you run into this issue then.

I think the exsiting note covers these failures, so I've closed it now.

Added to the ticket.

Confirmed.  I'll hopefully take a look at the text some time this week.

Thanks.  As I'm constrained to building under a VirtualBox environment, I
don't trust my SBUs to be anywhere near accurate.

I wouldn't even both, to be honest Bruce.  I'd just mark this as WONTFIX, or
even introduce a new status/resolution as 'UPSTREAM'.  This has been fixed
upstream so we're just waiting on a new release (a lot like our
Util-Linux-NG/E2fsprogs ticket).
