Description of problem:
I tried to update my fc5 test2 system with test3. I got a transaction error during install (I file this separately). The installer displayed a message dialog saying that the insall didn't work. After confirming "ok" halt was executed. But the console didn't switch to console 1 instead console 6 or 7 was displayed. This console was just black and didn't display the message that the system was halted and it is save to reboot. For some users with less experience this looks like the system just hangs.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install fc5 test3
2. simulate a bug during transaction test
3. confirm the error message
4. wait 

Actual Results:  The system halts (this is okay), but it shows the wrong console window

Expected Results:  The installer should automatically switch to the console which displays the messages which are printed by "halt", otherwise the user doesn't know what happened
