[ale] tty1 vs tty2,3,4,etc

what is special about tty1? In Fedora 12 I have turned on Magic SysRq. This
allows me to press alt-sysrq-k and slaughter everything running on a tty.
Works fine for tty2+ but causes a system panic and hard crash on tty1.

Is init hard bound to tty1?

 Faith is a cop-out. If the only way you can accept an assertion is by
faith, then you are conceding that it can?t be taken on its own merits.
