"ttywatch" (it's in fedora-extras) is what I use for serial console
monitoring.  It logs stuff permanently in the background, with proper
log file rotation; but it also lets you connect to the console live, via
a per-port telnet-to-serial relay, when you need it.  And it passes ^A
through just fine.

btw, for FC5 xen builds, it turns out that serial console input (which
is needed for the HV to see the ^A's) doesn't work unless you specify
pnpacpi=off on the kernel boot line.  We need to work out why: I suspect
that the ACPI pnp bios is tweaking the serial lines for mouse probing
and is upsetting the HV console input in the process.
