Even if QAUTOVRT is 0, existing devices will be re-used since the QAUTOVRT
applies to creation of new devices.  If you delete the devices in question, then
you will probably get the effect you need.

Telnet normally varies on a device requested if it is varied off.  Simply
varying off a device will not block it's usage by Telnet (not sure about SNA
case).

Named devices get assigned to QVIRCDnnnn controllers, system default devices
(QPADEVnnnn) get assigned to QPACTLnn controllers.  Again, not sure about the
SNA case, but I think it is similar.  Does this explain things?
