Is it printing "ASSERT <blah>", or "Assertion failed:"?  The string "ASSERT"
doesn't exist anywhere in the loader or libstand.

If you want to add a pause after an assertion failure (not a bad idea
really), do it in src/lib/libstand/assert.c.

You *are* aware that you can boot loader.old by hitting a key while the
spinner is paused, before the loader starts, right?
