Unfortunately, while I got a lot of great suggestions, none of them

The suggestions were:
Halt from the OS prompt.
Check your console connectors and Cisco settings.
Try ~# instead if you're using tip.
Check the key switch position on the Sun.
Try ctrl-alt-^.

However, I believe I've found the problem.  The Auspex ships with a PC
keyboard, mouse and monitor.  Since it's a PC keyboard and not a Sun
keyboard, it appears that Auspex changes the abort_enable setting in
set abort_enable=2

This should enable ctrl-brk on the PC keyboard to work (and it does).
However, I believe this changes the stop-A behavior.  I have commented out
that line, and will reboot at my earliest convenience.  That should solve
the problem.

Again, thanks, all.
