Definitely a bug there......
If I boot the recovery system (single) and then 'drop to a root shell', the
console is fine.
But even booting the recovery and asking to 'run in failsafe graphic mode'
will not provide a working console mode. Once the terminal is placed into
any graphic mode, it will not work as a real console.
