NetBSD ws1 1.6Q NetBSD 1.6Q (VVZ) #15: Fri Apr 4 21:49:37 CEST 2003 kavron@ws1:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/VVZ i386
Default binary snapshot (1.6P) installation as well an upgrade to 1.6Q,after starting the X Window (startx) it's lagging two - three seconds
before you get in front tty5 with the X Window on your screen. In those two - three seconds you see output from tty1 (console by default), I don't
know if it can be considered insecure, but don't think it's a clean design. Supposing as user you executed X from tty2 and root is on tty1 you
see output from root as well if you're quick enough you can run commands from tty1 while X is still starting.
I don't know as I said if it's important, because if you can start X local
from your pc you also can see tty1 with alt + F1. But don't think it's clean the design.
login as a user, example root on tty1 (console)... as another user on tty2
and run X from tty2, you'll see output from user root and can input anything while lagging to start X.
