Has anyone experienced the following problem (on an x86):

When the console is pccons (i.e. pc0) the X server will completely
hang (no mouse or keyboard input) after some amount of time (not usage
dependent it seems), usually within 10 minutes to an hour. If I use a
pcvt (vt0) console then all of these problems vanish.

Another issue:

When building X with PCVT support (PCVT_SUPPORT defined in
by default) the build will try to include "machine/pcvt_ioctl.h",
however, when one builds NetBSD the various pcvt*.h files do not get
installed include /usr/include/machine. Should they be?
