Garbage printed during startup
This started with the last-but-one initscripts update which recommended taking a lot of stuff out of rc.conf and putting it in small specialised files, ready for systemd. Which I duly did.
Previously everything worked fine. Now it gets to the point where the console is being configured, then it spits out a load of cyrillic characters and other garbage. After this normal service is resumed but without Arch's usual bold highlighting (that depends on tput, and I've confirmed by logging in at a console that tput doesn't do highlighting any more).
It's a minor glitch but very annoying. I've tried booting with systemd instead of init, thinking that would work better but the same thing happens.
My vconsole.conf file contains only 2 lines:
I don't know what the second line does - I copied it from an example.
