I have a current system configured to use a serial console. I'm 
getting a 'login_tty /dev/console: Inappropriate ioctl for device'
to the console every few seconds.

bash-2.05b# cat /boot.config

In /etc/ttys, i have set console as:
console  "/usr/libexec/getty std.115200" vt100   on  secure
and also have:
ttyd0   "/usr/libexec/getty std.115200" vt100   on secure

in the /boot/device.hints, i have:

bash-2.05b# uname -a
FreeBSD 5.1-CURRENT FreeBSD 5.1-CURRENT #2: Sat
Nov 22 16:39:04 EST 2003
root at  i386

Nov 22 18:03:16 bsd7 getty[940]: login_tty /dev/console: Inappropriate ioctl
for device
Nov 22 18:03:16 bsd7 init: getty repeating too quickly on port /dev/console,
sleeping 30 secs

Any suggestions on what this might be coming from?
