Interesting, something to poke at when theres a spare moment, but it's
only for consistency.

Actually it does, I always open firefox and go to the wiki to grab the
commands I need, so under this circumstance it might work.

Well the problem there is a few of the things rely on being logged in
(setting the background). I could try to make sure to uncheck the save
session next time I build and see what happens. Personally I also
cheatsheet the commands(to make sure I get them right) I need from the
wiki but I can easily prep a text file to copy/paste from in a xterm.
