That's 'cause you're logging into /dev/ttye0. If you change /etc/ttys
to run getty on the console instead, that might work for you. I forget
why this isn't a good idea, but I remember being yelled at for it once
upon a time. It would, incidentally, make it unnecessary to change
/etc/ttys when you switch between ite and serial consoles.
