...suppose udev creates a new console.  Then it has to be initialized 
with some font, hasn't it?  From my tests it seems that the font used 
for this initialization is the same as the font used on the current 
console.  Isn't it possible that sometimes this font is set only _after_ 
udev has started the script cached_setup_font.sh by the following rule

ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="vtconsole", KERNEL=="vtcon*", RUN+="/etc/console-setup/cached_setup_font.sh"

however the font of the current console is read _before_ the script 
cached_setup_font.sh has had a chance to configure the font?
