Hmmm, I cannot reproduce it (this is becoming a trend... but I am not
doing it on purpose, I promise!).

I tried now with e.g. netris (has the virtue of being small and probably
harmless) and works fine.

I am pretty sure that I tested that this would not happen when
implementing the feature, because it was the problem that prevented it
from being implemented before, and also the reason why "q+Enter" needs
to do some processing rather than exiting more quickly -- to detect
upgrades and reinstalls and other changes in states, and save it to not
repeat them in later sessions.

Does it happen with any package that you try?

I don't have any clue of what might be wrong.
