I find vt (4) nice when in 1920*1080 resolution, as opposed to the resolution 
it comes up with after booting FreeBSD.

NetBSD newer versions with DRMKMS come up in this high resolution, as does 
FreeBSD when returning to console after exiting X.

But I notice copy-and-paste by mouse on non-X console double-spaces, inserting 
a blank line between lines.

Just for comparison, mouse copy-and-paste did not work at all with 
NetBSD-current i386 and amd64, but I am now rather behind, and intend to try 
again after updating to a more current version.
