There has been some recent change somewhere in the startup process
that makes startup messages disappear once the process is completed
and the login prompt appears. I had (and have) in /etc/initttab:

c1:2345:respawn:/sbin/agetty -i -8 38400 tty1 linux

I added the "-i" to prevent clearing the terminal, and it worked. Not
any more. Not even with  Shift+PageUp. Anyone knows what changed?
