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.

Please rephrase, Patrick.

This is the same list I'd expect if everything was working OK.
You can see that i have logged in on tty and there is bash running there
The getty running on the other VTs means there should be a login prompt.
There isn't.
Something is worn with connections, frame buffer, whatever. I don't
know enough about these drivers to be sure what.
