This has been true in Debian up through Squeeze 6.  But in the soon to
be released Wheezy 7 very unfortunately in my opinion the /sbin/getty
in the util-linux package has updated and it now clears the screen.
This default clearing of the screen erases the bootup messages from
vt1.  In Wheezy and later the default will be that vt1 no longer
displays the bootup messages.

I add the /sbin/getty --noclear option in /etc/inittab at least to vt1
so that the boot messages are preserved as they were before.
