Default %n in writable segment detected ??

What's the below "%n in writable segment detected" bit all about? Should
I worry about it? I saw it once before but have no clue whether it's
portage/emerge itself outputting it (I would guess yes, QA warning??), or
one of the build processes.

I'm guessing it's a warning from portage's newer parallel jobs processing
that you guys may be interested in (a bug to trace down? file it?? any
other info beyond the below that would be useful? how to duplicate?
etc.) but don't know and obviously haven't the foggiest how serious it
is. But it didn't cause anything to barf, so I figured it couldn't be
too bad. But it's still worrying not knowing what it is, when it's
obviously important enough to break the parallel jobs enforced
backgrounding.

~amd64/2008.0/no-multilib, portage-2.2_rc25 (now, previously with a
different _rc)

Would you like to merge these packages? [Yes/No]

Here's some more strange output, from the last line above but here shown
as it was when portage finished. These sort of make sense, but AFAIK
should be in the individual emerge logs and spit out at the end with
them, not jumbled into the parallel jobs stuff. That's enough to file a
bug on, but I don't know whether it's the same one as above or unrelated,
so thought I'd throw it in here first and ask since I have the thread
open already.

it has nothing to do with portage and it can be ignored. if you want more
info, just search bugzilla and/or google.

So it's sent directly to the terminal and can't be caught and redirected
to the appropriate log when the configure is running in the background.
That sucks!

Thanks.
