I wrote a regression suite that stresses the console code pretty hard and checks for data corruption. We're still losing data (although when throttled appropriately the loss can reduced). I've hunted it down a bit and it appears xcs is dropping the messages.

This leads to the question of how close the new console driver is. If it's going to be awhile, I'll hunt down the xcs problem but I'd rather put that energy into just getting rid of xcs.

This has now become my top priority, so I'm actually working on it now, and I'll hopefully have something to test by tomorrow.

Let me know if there's anything I can do to help out.

Your regression test sounds useful, I'll likely be needing it soon...
