--- Comment #1 from joeb1 at a1poweruser.com ---
When vidcontrol -h <history size> in rc.conf and boot time console driver is
"sc" this causes a ioctl warning message to occur sometimes.

Sometime around 7.x or 8.x the environment variable "history" and "savehist"
was introduced which pretty much made the vidcontrol -h obsolete. 

See the .cshrc file in any user home directory for set command of "history" and

The -h option of vidcontrol needs to be made comparable with "history" and
"savehist" usage or removed all together.
