Hello List!

Since some cvsup three or four weeks ago my text-console on
-CURRENT is a complete mess (on previous versions of -CURRENT
everything worked fine).

Here are some symptoms:
- special characters (you need for drawing neat lines in
  /stand/sysinstall or the midnight-commander) display as weird
- Function and arrow keys don't work
- vi and ee don't scroll text files correctly, just the bottom
  line changes.

I tried to experiment with vidcontrol and kbdcontrol, to change
my LANG enviroment and to compare with working settings of my 4.8
-STABLE on the same machine - useless.

Any ideas what could be done?
