Serial Redirection BETA4

I was digging around and found this: http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=1247.0 but it was closed so I couldn't post to it.
I'm experiencing the same type of symptom, console redirection works up until the menu starts then takes no imput. Upon reboot I see:
"vidcontrogetting active vty: Inappropriate ioctl for device"
then the normal shutdown process. I tried the enabling and disabling then reboot method and got the same results. I have the box connected to a Cyclades alterpath 16 (I know there is some weirdness with these devices running certain firmware). I just wanted to verify that if this is a known issue or just simple user error before I go digging any deeper.
Some possible useful data points:
This was a new install of BETA4
Hardware is Dell 2850
Console redirection is "on" in bios but disabled after BIOS (so the OS can take over).
I see what I expect up until when the menu is supposed to be there.
The menu appears on the VGA monitor I have plugged in and the keyboard works.
/boot.config does have -D in it.
The cyclades does work for all the other devices plugged into it.
