+ task ext2fs deallocating a bogus port 947, most probably a bug.
+ login:
+
+This is coming from the execution of the shell script
+/etc/network/if-up.d/ntpdate, whose stdout/stderr is on the Mach console, but
+part of which gets executed after getty starts on it. It happens that getty uses
+revoke() to revoke access to it from other programs, and thus the ntpdate shell
+scripts gets its stdout/stderr in a bogus state, which libc doesn't really cope
+with correctly.
+
+Commenting `c:23:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 console` from `/etc/inittab` works
+around the issue (but removes the getty from the Mach console)
