CDE console no redirection

Hi everybody!!!

After running the suggestions received, I have new information
about my problem (maybe I am close to the solution, but still not there
;-( ).
So I will repost my question with the new information I have now:

When I start CDE from dtlogin, the console window works OK.
When I login from the command line, and start CDE running
xinit /usr/dt/bin/Xsession &
the console is not recognized, and all the console output goes to the
of the screen, destroying the display (I have to do a refresh to see it

The console I had, was the one opened from the CDE popup menu.
I was suggested to start it using a command line
xterm -C &

When I try to do this, I can see the following error:
xterm: console rederiction failed

An xterm is open but it still doesn't work as the console.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance
