In that case this is something else.
I assumed so becouse of the
options         WS_KERNEL_FG=WSCOL_GREEN
options         WSDISPLAY_*
in the kernel config thinking this was connected with the curses code

What I mean is the boot text in console looks strange.
Letters are smaller, looks like it's a totally different font type  
and size.
And the kernel boot message and userland message get mixed together
looking like a mess in console.

Were there any wscons changes since 4.99.19 that could have affected
