Currently, if I log in, do some work, then log out (from plain TTY, no
X/SSH/etc), the output of my previous session is still readable above
the new "login: " prompt. One can use scroll lock to view even more.

How do I get it to clear the screen (and the scroll buffer) when the
login prompt gets redisplayed?
