No, you're mistaken.  "set -m" enables job control, and "set +m"
disables it.  xfs seems to work properly on pmax only when job control
is enabled.

I believe you're also mistaken here, unless something has changed
in the past year to make this necessary.  The only pmax of mine that
uses xdm is running 1.3.0 and works just fine with the console enabled
in /etc/ttys.
