It's 'wrong', but it's predictably wrong without side-effects on the
rest of the interface (crash, hang, etc.) and easily explained what
to do. At this stage of the release cycle, that's better than a patch
that fixes it for some cases and does really bizarre things in ways
that I haven't characterized yet. (I've seen hangs in the VT switch
code, and I can reliably reproduce a condition where the console
is perfectly fine... but not actually updating on the screen.)
Still poking at it, though.
