I've done a little more debugging, and it's even stranger than I thought. The
console is only half missing.

What's missing is my shell prompt, and a few other things. I can type in
commands, though. The prompt returns, however, if I 'cd' to the root direcetory.

In addition, the 'set' command only displays some of the environment variables.
The others produce blank lines. Here's a sample output.

Do you have any idea what's going on? This is just so bizarre.


p4080 login: root
Password:
ehv_bc_tty_open:446 ttys=dcf0e400 stdout_irq=66
ehv_bc_tty_open:449 ttys->driver_data=(null) &ttyport=c0558f34
ehv_bc_tty_close:455 tty=dcf0e400
ls
test_setkey
