I had a fix in console-common to set the default console font to
a font supporting Latin, Cyrillic, Hebrew and Arabic (as done
by RedHat), but it appears that setting the font on the console
will change the vesa mode, if that has been set at the kernel level. ie if someone
had chosen an 80x40 screen mode, then setting the font (which has a 16p size),
change the screen size
back to 80x25, which was not liked.

Similarly, if the system locale was set to Greek, for example,
a greek font should be chosen.

I'm working on a fix to detect this, and conditionally set the
font in Sarge.
