Sorry. Missed a previous thread. Cured it by setting

Our posts crossed in the mail. I didn't see this until I sent my
last post. Sorry. I'm glad you got it solved. And it looks like
my hunch about this being related to kernel mode setting was right.

Still, you might want to try using the alternate fonts, if you do
any significant work in the console. I think they look better.
