    SubjectConsole screwed up - was: Re: Kernels -in and out
    ----- Forwarded message from Albert Cahalan -----

    From: Alan Cox <>
    Any setup with suid root software that
    gets IO privileges is broken. Any setup that lets the user jam
    the console into some weird keyboard/video mode is broken.
    I hope some of this stuff can get fixed in post-2.0 Linux.

    ----- End of forwarded message from Albert Cahalan -----
    I second that. Have you ever tried to reset a virtual terminal
    to non |||| semigraphical mode after cat-ing a binary file?
    Even exit and hitting ctrl-d on the login, which helps on other
    systems, does not here. Any known ways to reset the terminal
    to readable characters?
