This was the problem.  Gentoo uses devfs, and Debian doesn't - out of the box.
Once devfs was taken out of the kernel, no more problems with getty
and respawns happening faster than processes dying.

Now I just have to become better aquanted with all of the debianisms
and defeat stuff that thinks this is still testing,  (e.g. apt-setup) etc.
