early switching between VTs may results in frame buffer display on
the wrong VT (AFAIK, the current one when FB is enabled), while the
input (keyboard) is still accepted from the 1st VT.
Going to a shell and exiting back blind-typing on the 1st VT seems
to fix the problem.
May be a "chvt 1" or something like that must be added somewhere...
