I've installed NetBSD 2.0RC1 and configured xdm to start automatically. 
Unfortunately, this way the first virtual console becomes useless and there are 
some timeout errors about it.  When in /etc/ttys I make console "off" and ttyE0 
"on" (i.e. toggle both), this problem gets fixed.

Is this intentional behaviour?  If it is, I would like to forward requst to 
netbsd-docs@ to mention this in The NetBSD Guide.  Or at least add it to
