  SIGHUPing syslogd or killing X causes console to fritz.

The problem seems to be that syslogd closes & reopens /dev/console
while I am logged on /dev/vga.

Being a U*IX pre-novice I tried the following fix :

  cd /dev
  mv console console_
  ln vga console

wich solves the problem with SIGHUPing syslogd. (I have not tried
killing X).

With my *extremely* limited U*IX experience it is hard to separate
real solutions from temporary work-arounds, so please feel free to
delete this mail and forget all about it. (Besides, the idea may
even be old).
