The funny thing is, even with a keyboard plugged right into the system, and
otherwise fully working, drbdadmin run from the init.d script will not
accept 'yes' input. 

Sure, being there I was able to boot into recovery mode and fix things. But
drbdadmin's 'yes' input mechanism looks to be broken, at least in the
version I'm running, at least when run from init.d. If it hadn't been, I
could have fixed this all remotely.
