I want to autostart some console sessions. Don't ask.
 I have disabled login on vty 1 thru 5.
So I login on 6 and type
openvt -f -c 2 tn5250 MYSESS2
and it runs great on console2.

I put the same line in .xinitrc and I get connection refused.
It would take a while to explain why I want to do it it in .xinitrc.
Any idea why that does not work?
Does connection refused mean tn5250 is running but there is a network problem?

I can openvt other things from .xinitrc and they work ok.
I have copied .tn5250 to /etc ??  no good.
I have HOME=/root  in .xinitrc.   no good.
Mystified.
