At least on my system (a vaguely up-to-date Debian "sarge"), the
terminfo entry for TERM=linux _claims_ an underlining capability:

   (miles) TERM=linux infocmp -L
   #       Reconstructed via infocmp from file: /etc/terminfo/l/linux
   linux|linux console,
           enter_underline_mode=\E[4m, erase_chars=\E[%p1%dX,

However my actual linux (VGA) console seems to display this as bold.

Perhaps this is a bug in the "linux" terminfo entry.
