Usually, that's an indication that there are a bunch of files in that
directory.  First of all, using "-l" makes the ls take a *LOT* longer.
I'd recommend trying "find /tmp | less" to take a look at what's in
there.  It should be fairly obvious what files are the problems.

 Actual error message:  "Keyboard not connected.  Press F1 to continue."
