IIRC you won't get a console if there are no VCs defined. Did you add the tty*
lines to /etc/ttys and did you create those ttys in /dev/tty*?

Please have a look at the /dev/vcs "directory". There should be subdirectories
created for every available VC.

Can you please send your /etc/ttys if you still have problems?

I don't think this is a bug(one that makes the console crash), see my desciption
above, but if it is you should do this:

# gdb console
(gdb) r -d vga -d pc_kbd /dev/vcs

Wait until it crashes, if it doesn't crash this won't help you.
If it crashes do the following:

(gdb) info threads

Repeat this for every thread where x is the thread number (those are show with
info threads).
(gdb) thread x
(gdb) bt

If you send all those backtraces to bug-hurd I can (try to) help you with the 

But I'm quite sure this is no crash but a configuration mistake please focus on
that. You can start with reading this mail sent to bug-hurd a while ago:
