Hello, all.

I am running NetBSD-1.1 on a Sun 3 primarily for use as a X-station.

However, sometimes I get console-directed error messages output to the
screen directly, messing up my windows.  Xconsole doesn't work, giving
me the message "Can't open console.".

And, to make things worse, xrefresh is unable to clear the mess.  It
seems that these messages are in another plane, covering windows under it.
