It looks like it tried to add additional screens and could not.
I would guess that you probably have a frame buffer device, which
we do not currently support virtual terminals on.  I've been thinking
about adding some code to do that, but given the current state of
my priorities, I do not think that I'll have time to do it before
1.5, but I may be able to sneak it into 1.5.1.  (Or, maybe someone
else might do it.)
