Minor anomaly with -current

On my "production" amd64 system running 9.99.42, if I log in on the
console as root I get one log message:

	Mar  2 07:40:40  login: ROOT LOGIN (root) on tty constty

However, if I creatae a 9.99.48 vm using qemu, I get two messages!

	Mar  2 15:21:23  login: ROOT LOGIN (root) on tty constty
	Mar  2 15:21:23  login: ROOT LOGIN (root) ON constty

Note also the subtle difference - the additional message has done
the equivalent of s/on tty//ON/


Both systems have the following in /etc/ttys:

	console "/usr/libexec/getty Pc"         vt100   off secure
	constty "/usr/libexec/getty Pc"         vt100   on secure

It's obviously not a big problem, just something I noticed.
