	I've found this problem after sending misc/21069.
	I have to tell that I didn't well test what I've sent. I mean
	what I sent does work perfectly, but only on first console, on
	rest we still have old fonts...

	What I've found exactly after it is, that when you are trying
	to set up:
	-- wscons.conf --
	screen 1 -  vt220 (instead of screen 1 - vt100)
	-- wscons.conf --

	You get such error message:

	WSDISPLAYIO_ADDSCREEN: Device not configured

	I am not sure, but for me it seems that we are unable to use vt220 emulation.

	Simply run:
	(the numbers on the ends of line are your console number)

	wsconscfg -F -d 2
	wsconscfg -t 80x25 -e vt220 2
	wsconscfg -t 80x25 -e vt100 2

	Not known.
