This mornings boot of the workstation the login appear and the fonts are
the normal size. But that's the same kernel and library and config that
I used yesterday over three separate boots, non of which were normal and
all three were different in what the Ctl-Alt-Del showed.

Like I said earlier ... ALMOST

I hot-key this Am to Ctl-AltF1 and see the login prompt in a normal font
so login as root.

I get the "have a lot of fun" messaga agd a # prompt.

I hit return.


no new line.

I hot-key to Ctl-AltF2, 3, 4, 5, 6
and see the same thing.

No, nt the same phenomena, the same screen.
its as if the framebuffer or whatever, is mapped to them all.
I see the exact same screen, pixel for pixel.

However, there should be login prompts on each

# ps -ef | grep tty

There's something inconsistent or perhaps its consistent and I'm just
seen different manifestations based on a variable that I'm unaware of.

You have active logins to all those tty's. A "ps -ef|grep tty" on my
system only reveals tty's with active logins.
