that's the Xen's console that you changed, not the NetBSD one.
I though you had changed the NetBSD one from com1 to com0.

It does matter if you use 'tty0' or 'pc' (in which case NetBSD will use
the pckbc/vga console), anything else (or no console= at all) will
use the xen console (which won't work well if xen itself is told
to use the VGA console).
