That is the right way. If there is the argument `-c /dev/cons' the
console client created the node and sets the translator on top of that
I assume you have the latest debian package and the '-c' argument is
showed when you run console --help?

That sounds like some serious problem. :/
Can you attach gdb to the console client (after logging in using ssh
or so) and figure out where it is hanging. Or did it crash?
