    The vidcontrol line should probably be:
	vidcontrol ${_mousechar_arg} -m on < /dev/ttyv0

    If you test that out and make sure it still works as advertised, I'll
    commit it.
Works OK for me.  One odd side effect:  '/etc/rc.d/moused restart' now
yields the original error message just once instead of eleven times.
During normal bootup there are no error messages, though.
