cons.saver used to be suid root on Debian I believe. This has changed.
cons.saver should now be suid vcsa. This user needs access to all vcsa
devices (chown vcsa /dev/vcsa*). If the user doesn't exist you need to
create it.

For me the option "output lines" is available on a console, but not in
an xterm or gnome-terminal. It doesn't matter whether I'm logged in as
root or not. Not sure why this is.
