The problem here is that now we've broken the assumption that
autostep/interactive modes display every screen.  Now there's this one
special screen that doesn't get displayed, which is going to lead to
questions about where it went.  Also the main reason for autostep is for
taking screenshots and doing documentation, which means that screen's
going to have to get treated specially.
