is this a problem with my graphics card or this a bug in wscons? If I
run something like "find /usr" which changes the screen very frequently
and then switch fast between different terminals some of the lines get
printed on the other terminal instead. This does not happen with a
"static" terminal which shows "man less" or something. This happends
even before I have started X11 at all. Can someone reproduce that?

This is from dmesg:
