I just thought of something that probably will end up
low on the priority list, but is a concern, and is
why I am mentioning it.

When I was typing a personal letter on the console, I
emailed it, cleared the screen, and logged out.
Curiously, I hit alt-pageup and to my surprise, part
of the letter was 'viewable'.

so I hit enter an appropriate number of times at the
getty prompt to clear the buffer of my letter.

I am assuming there should be a user-level program
that clears the buffer, or maybe not, but anyway
this stuck me as odd and therefore I thought I'd
mention it.
