Re: can't logout on consoles

Have had a similar experience after upgrading `util-linux'.  The package
util-linux  supplies getty, getty  is the  culprit here  as it  does not
immediately free the tty after logout.

I recall this being related to an `util-linux' upgrade.  Downgraded
util-linux to  2.12-3 (sarge's  version) and now  all is  normal.  Maybe
bsdutils and mount should also be downgraded.

Hack getty!
