How stupid of me, if that's the case then I think I know what went wrong
with my installation. I verified that a testing installation on virtual
box does clear the console. On my desktop I installed Squeeze (back then
it was testing), and I think I cleared my home directory en copied over
several directories from my old Lenny installation, might have missed
that file.

Thanks for clearing that up for me.
