script hangs when outputing to /dev/console

I am running solaris 8 on a sparcs box. The system is connected to a lightwave console server. I have a script that hangs when sending output to '/dev/console'. Any ideas?

TTY devices can employ flow-control to stop writes until the output can be written. This is probably happening to you. You could connect to the terminal server and allow it to display the characters. Or you could use syslog.

How do you know that it "hangs" when the outtput is being sent.?
