in this case the shell is not signaled since "-1" does not signal the sending

i also wondered whether he used openrc-init here ?
in that case he may have also used openrc's "supervise-daemon" util
which do not get restarted after they were terminated by the kill -1 -9
blast and hence cannot respawn the gettys. looks like you were pretty
hosed when you quit the super-user zsh (which sent the kill blast via
its "kill" builtin) ?

you should provide more information on the used init here as openrc
is not an init per se and works well with sysv + busybox init, runit, ...

>>  sysV: init and 6 ttys with shell ... nothing can kill it that I know off.

what do you mean here ?
were the gettys respawned by SysV init or did they not die at all ?
where did you send the signal from ?
i would assume from a super-user zsh on a console tty ?
