Bug#523437: console-setup: Console setup does not persist after switching to X and back
After switching to X and back, the console setup does not persist: the
font reverts back, and non-ASCII characters such as line-drawing
characters become incorrect.
One easy way to reproduce this:
- Run whiptail --msgbox hello 20 20
- Observe the line-drawing characters surrounding the dialog box.
- Switch to X.
- Switch back to the console.
- Observe the garbage characters that have replaced the line-drawing
