I doubt that it is related to some XFree86 problem. I suppose it is
related to WSCONS. My kernel configuration looks like this:
# wscons options
# builtin terminal emulations
#options WSEMUL_SUN # sun terminal emulation
options WSEMUL_VT100 # VT100 / VT220 emulation
# different kernel output - see dev/wscons/wsdisplayvar.h
# compatibility to other console drivers
options WSDISPLAY_COMPAT_PCVT # emulate some ioctls
options WSDISPLAY_COMPAT_SYSCONS # emulate some ioctls
options WSDISPLAY_COMPAT_USL # VT handling
options WSDISPLAY_COMPAT_RAWKBD # can get raw scancodes
# see dev/pckbc/wskbdmap_mfii.c for implemented layouts
#options PCKBD_LAYOUT="(KB_DE | KB_NODEAD)"
# allocate a number of virtual screens at autoconfiguration time
# use a large software cursor that doesn't blink
# modify the screen type of the console; defaults to "80x25"
Note that I disable the console color stuff. And that's my "wsconf.conf":
screen 1 - vt100
screen 2 - vt100
screen 3 - vt100
screen 4 - vt100
screen 5 - vt100
screen 6 - vt100
screen 7 - vt100
The X11 server is launched by "xdm" on the 7th screen.
