In similar fashion to this:
In other words.. use VT_GETSTATE to check the current active console,
in a loop, calling VT_ACTIVATE until happy.
Not a great solution, but I think we should put it in place and see if
it kills this bug. The real solution needs kernel help, and I think
the kernel developers would say "lets pencil this in for when we move
the console layer into userspace" which is a slow moving effort.
