cool... this is the same setup i have, so it sounds like a definite bug.
and also sounds like i don't have to worry about my memory too much! :)

i'm cc'ing this to linux-kernel... any ideas, folks? i know the output
of "ps" WRT tty's changed sometime around 1.3.85; since then it's shown
virtual consoles as "1" or "10" rather than "v01" or "v10".

is there any other setup info anyone needs?
