that was my first thought, but if you press a key on the console, it's
not grabbed by pd ... i actually don't know why, but it's possible, that
pd's keyboard access is through the gui ...

The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live,
mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time,
the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn,
burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across
the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and
everybody goes "Awww!"
