[gpm]Must I use a getty to run GPM correctly ?

Hi everybody !
I'm working on a Linux distro for the DreamCast, and I've got a little problem
I use busybox-0.60.1 and linux-dreamcast-2.4.10-pre6 (and only theses
softwares) to do tests...
I launch GPM, the cursor appears and follow the mouse mouvements. *But* when I
tried to make a selection and to paste it, all the screen up to the pointer
became highlighted and all buttons pasted this 'crazy' selection... !?
I also tried to connect a client :
"mev: Can't open mouse connection"
I traced the execution, and this error comes from this test :
"if (strcmp(tty,vcname, strlen(vcname) ) || !isdigit( tty[strlen(vcname) ] ))"
in liblow.c at lines 249/248
Must I use a getty (not an alone console) ???
