    Hi Antonio; i'm very sorry about the delay in answering: been
    pretty ill.

    i had upgraded all four servers here to 2.6.23-rc6 and found that
    only one had this console problem. It runs a very old S3 Virge
    PCI vidcard.

    Tonight i upgraded it to 2.6.23-rc7 and the console is fine again,
    but, just to be complete i include the requested info:
