[Debian-eeepc-devel] eeepc-acpi-scripts + console + gnu screen ↦ staircase effect

My normal work environment is Emacs in GNU Screen on the fbcon.  When I
hit e.g. Fn+F11 (the "raise volume" hotkey), eeepc-acpi-scripts writes
output (the new volume) to /dev/console.

Unfortunately, doing this in quick succession (e.g. cycling through SHE
states) results in a "staircase" effect.  How do I prevent that?

Curiously, output from the kernel (e.g. from plugging in a USB key) does
NOT have the staircase effect.
