I left out the change to /etc/ttys in my original solution e-mail; something
like the following to set a line type for the tty:
ttyu0 "/usr/libexec/getty std.9600" vt100 on insecure
vt100 is a 80 column x 24 line terminal. I think using vt100-w instead would
give you a 132 column line (described in termcap(5)).
