I'm running a day or two old -current (i386), and I just discovered
that switching between consoles when running X and using wscons doesn't

By "doesn't work" I mean that you can switch to another console fine,
but when you try to switch back, X never goes back to graphics mode;
it's just stuck at text mode.

>From my recent invesitgation, it seems like what happens is that the
never never calls that VT_RELDISP ioctl(), and from then on everything
goes to hell (I could be wrong, because the USL screen swiching code is
a bit confusing to me).

Before I go further, has anyone else seen this?
