Update: Definitely a Linux issue. This goes back to fun times with serial devices.
For anyone interested (and who didn't already know), the TTY devices in Linux
still emulate serial devices, complete with stop bits, parities, baud rates,
line-ending-translation, etc. Some getty programs, such as agetty, reset the
terminal settings upon startup and then attempt to guess those settings after
you've typed your login name and hit enter.
So my solution is just to disable agetty on the main terminal, and require
anyone who wants to log in to switch to another terminal. That works for my
solution. I'm sure there are other ways.
