All I can say is that it should be fixed by now...  We have seen this
problem before.  What kernel are you running?  Do more
recent kernels boot?  (like the Jan 24 kernel?)

*sigh*  It's the console output.  Patience...  It will be/has been
fixed.  I haven't seen it, yet, but it should be much improved soon.
vi works for the most part, but emacs does more bizarre things...

If you use a serial terminal, it should be OK on the terminal.  Other
than that, refresh the screen often...
