Do you by any chance use a VESA mode in text vtys?

The vesa module in -CURRENT has problems now. If you try to
set the VESA_800x600 mode in syscons, you will likely to
hang your machine. This is a known problem, and is somewhat
related to vm86 and context switching.  I am afraid there is
no immediate fix for it.
