Here is a new wrinkle: sometimes the line 'NetBSD/i386' line
is as above, sometimes it is:
NetBSD/i386 (cuw) (constty)
I expect for it to be either 'constty' or 'console', always, but not
one or the other! What's going on, there? FWIW, the system seems to
behave equally badly whether it says 'console' or 'constty'.
