Comment 30 for bug 652221

status openvt
openvt start/running, process 408

root@localhost:~# status tty1
tty1 stop/waiting
root@localhost:~# status tty2
tty2 start/running, process 360
root@localhost:~# status tty3
tty3 start/running, process 362
root@localhost:~# status tty4
tty4 start/running, process 354

if I flip over to tty2 (ctrl-option-f2), I see the login prompt! Then if I flip BACK to tty1 (ctrl-option-F1), it's at the command line prompt!

after which

root@localhost:~# status tty1
tty1 stop/waiting
