I just now inadvertently pressed F7 instead of F3 and voila, there
are all the missing outputs I echoed in the xterm window!
So, `echo barf > /dev/console' is going to tty7 but is not showing
up in the xterm window from which the `echo' command was issued?
I wonder if this might have something to do with my other on-going
X-related question, namely, that long after `gonzo' has quit X, when
he does `who' he still sees this:
bedlam:[*gonzo*]~/stage $ who
bhogan tty2 Mar 17 20:09
gonzo tty3 Mar 18 03:53
root tty6 Mar 17 20:08
gonzo ttyp1 Mar 18 03:54 (:0.0)
