What was the output? (I realise I can find out)
With usability issues like this, opening a bug in
bugzilla.yoctoproject.org is a good idea, particularly as we've been
focusing on cleaning up this kind of problem. Reporting them with a
known reproducible test case helps a lot as when you're looking to try
and fix these things, you need a good set of reproducers.
As a quick plug for the work that's been done already, we've now worked
through many of the issues that were reported so it is worth taking the
time to report them! :)
