How _it is_ a prlem that it is writen to the system console, thus mesing up
any session that one is using there. This seems to be a basic flaw in
Debian's setup, at this point in time I have 2 (out of 4) Debian machines
that the console is unusable on because if this nonsense. I guess I have to
dig out the O'riely book, and figure out how to edit /etc/syslog.conf to
fix this.
