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.
