And the question is also, why does that second "swspeak" open a new
shell? It should stay to the shell opened at startup.

This is new to me, but I never started the grml2hd with speech, I used
braille and this does not happen. Perhaps because I started the script
using some parameters, such as the target drive and the place where the
boot manager has to be written.
