That's bad. "xt 0 alarm" should disarm the alarm - and close should too.
Why doesn't it?
In the case of console, you won't have a problem under normal operation,
but other devices which use alarms might indeed cause problems.
You'll have a problem with the console if you use the "input", "output"
or "io" methods to switch the input or output console devices.
