Bu that really just looks like a work-around around some weird bahaviour
of UML. I'd really prefer if UML could be fixed to either support a VC
or not support a VC, but please not "half support" it, by exposing
/dev/tty0 which is supposed to point to the foreground VC but in this
case actually points to some other place that isn't really clear what it
