Good point, that works from the console. Is it supposed to be
dependent on who's asking, like /dev/console in Unix? (If so, why
doesn't it like ptys?) Or does it show the currently active virtual
console? (If so, what does it matter whether I'm asking from a

Where's that even implemented? — grep vcs -r console/ returns nothing

Thanks, that looks relevant indeed!

Amusingly enough, the first result in Google points to someone else
having the same issue with X on the Hurd:

Looking at X source code (hw/xfree86/common/xf86Config.c), this seems
to refer to an option named AutoAddDevices. And sure enough, I have:

sergey@sergey-hurd-box:~$ grep AutoAddDevices -r /etc/X11/
/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/auto-all.conf:    Option "AutoAddDevices" "true"
sergey@sergey-hurd-box:~$ dpkg -S /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/auto-all.conf
dpkg-query: no path found matching pattern /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/auto-all.conf

What the hell? How'd that file get there? I certainly didn't write it.
