Well, faxgetty _is_ supposed to take the place of the regular getty, so I
think it makes sense for it to to be the session leader. BTW, what's the
"no tty" flag for faxgetty? Do you mean -D?
How are you invoking getty? I have this in my HylaFAX config file:
GettyArgs: "std.%s -"
If you try giving it a tty name, getty revoke()'s the tty, which causes
faxgetty to hang up which in turn screws up getty. The above setup works
for me for outgoing and incoming calls.
