nope. and not with other targets. only the fr, which makes me suspect it  
has something to do with usb networking.
but it has not been an issue before with debian ssh.
it seems to happen only when th fr outputs something, frinst when doing

qdbus --system

(even with mdbus) or when compiling via ssh.

yes, but i kind of hoped for a simpler solution.
