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

init claims to be unbound to tty1 (tty field shows ? on ps aux) but it
clearly still is. F12 is using a similar upstart process as ubuntu. I'm not
seeing anything in rc.sysinit that would tie it to tty1. Time to dig through
the source on the kernel to see how it calls init.

 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.
