Comment 22 for bug 148454

This looks like an upstream bug: console-kit starts a thread for each console that can theoretically exist. On Linux (/usr/include/linux/vt.h) MAX_NR_CONSOLE is defined to be 63. console-kit apparently wants to monitor each of the consoles to see if anyone ever logs in on these consoles or not.

On my Ubuntu system, I can only see VTs 1-7 enabled. I have only ever logged onto VT1 and VT7. All the remaining threads are useless and are wasting system resources.
