ipchains packet logs get displayed on active tty

Packet logs generated by my ipchains firewall are being displayed on
the currently selected tty device yet I don't have any syslog rules
which use /dev/console.  I have activated the rule sending much output
to /dev/tty12, yet the packet logs (generated using the KERN_NOTICE
facility setting by ip_fw.c in the kernel) which should match the
*.=NOTICE rule aren't going to tty12!

I didn't get this when I was using SuSE's distro and have no idea what
to try to fiddle with.  Anyone any ideas?
