SubjectBug in tty cooked mode kernel 3.12.3
As per your direction, I applied Peters patch to n_tty.c,
which looked like it was in the ballpark, echoing newline etc,
but it did not fix the problem.
It is still reproducible on my system as below.

> The $ prompt and the crlf are out of sequence.
> Hit return a few more times and it will straighten itself out.
> Then switch back to console 1 alt-f1
> Hit return and the same bug,

> Switch back to console 2 and the same problem.

Thank you for your quick reply,and the patch to try.
I'm afraid however this is still an unsolved problem.
Realize that it pops up rarely and randomly in just about any cooked program;
I chose the console switch example because it most reliably reproduces the bug.

Thank you.
