This isn’t the culprit.

I hadn’t noticed this is now part of ‘%base-services’.  It would be nice
if it were enabled on ARM only.  Thoughts?

Commenting out (display "\x1b%G" (fdes->outport fd)) in (gnu services
base) appear to solve the problem.  It seems that it used to affect just
the terminal behind FD and now somehow broadcasts to all existing
terminals?

Anyway, I’m unsure this ‘display’ call was needed at all.  It seems
redundant with the ‘tcsetattr’ call below.  So I think we’ll just remove
it.

Thoughts?
