Well, there have been a few recent qemu images around lately.

Yes, it's a known glitch in kvm which doesn't happen on real hardware.

Yes, the idle time doesn't take reboots into account.

/dev/console is not the hurdish console, yes, it's just the mach

from /dev/console:

console -d pc_kbd -d vga -c /dev/vcs
