Hey guix family!

The cookbook decribes a method of auto login to tty. I have noticed that since
the latest shepherd upgrade (that's my best guess as to when the error occured),
I have been unable to auto login to any tty as the cookbook describes. I have
created a minimal guix system vm, to test the auto-login to tty. I have set up
ttys 2 - 4 to auto login my user joshua, but when I boot the vm only tty1 is
auto logged in. The other tty's are not logged in.  Is auto login supposed to be
restricted to one partiular tty?

Thanks,

Joshua

P.S.  Here is the test vm.

To try it for yourself:

#+BEGIN_SRC shell

#+END_SRC

Ctrl-Alt-G (make sure Ctrl and Alt are the left most keys) to grab focus
inside the vm. Alt-right to switch to a different console. Ctrl-Alt-G to
ungrab focus from the vm.

And now I have a video bug report!

How cool is that?

Hey Leo, you helped me create this cookbook guide initially.  I thought
you deserve to know that auto-login to tty is not working like it used
to.  I am not asking you to drop everything and fix this.  Instead I am
just letting other interested parties know.

Thanks!

Joshua
