Do `showtrans /tmp/console' in that state and you will see one of the
arguments is the filename /tmp/console.  Basically, /dev/console is
being set up right, but is being tickled to turn on in some way, and
that's causing the problem.

I'm not sure exactly what the Right Thing is here, but I suspect it's
going to take inserting an extra reboot.
