1) is a totally bogus hack, and will break more systems than it helps.
The relevant questions are: a) whether your controller actually has a
functional `alternate status' port, and if so b) where an interrupt is
getting wedged so that everything times out.

2) is an indication that you didn't rebuild config(8).  (Like, duh, we
didn't change vm_swap.c just for the Hell of it.)

3) would indicate to me that pcvt is still outputting to (or at least
trying to scroll) the active window while in X mode.  This would be a
bug in pcvt somewhere.

4) will get very bad if you pcvt, since it does a lot of work (for some
reason I don't want to be privy to) at spltty().
