Hi Karel,

It's possibly worth re-checking that you've set the DATA_SINK_HOST to a 
valid machine that accepts connections on the discard port (9).  The 
console appears to lock for sometime if you don't (while waiting for a 
timeout presumably).

Additionally, when you do get it working the 't' option sends a fair 
chunk of data.  It takes a good 5-10s before you'll get focus back in 
the console.  You should see plenty of traffic to DATA_SINK_HOST:9 
throughout this period though.
