Description of problem:
When you happen to run into an install exception and request it to be saved to a
remote host, anaconda says the data was saved successfully and tells you that,
when you click on Ok, it will reboot.

It does blank the screen and the system does shut down, but you have to switch
to VT1 to tell you that it is now safe for *YOU* to reboot.  If you don't, it
will just sit there, while you patiently wait for it to reboot as promised.  No,
sir, I didn't wait any longer than 10 minutes :-) :-)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Trigger an installer exception (say, the one about selecting Brazilian
Portuguese I mentioned in bug 181738)
2.Save it to a remote host
3.Click on Ok (or whatever it is that the button says :-) to reboot
Actual results:
It terminates X and the system shuts down on some VT other than 1, where the
message that it is now safe to reboot is displayed

Expected results:
It should at least switch to VT1, such that the user knows it is time to reboot
by hand, but ideally it should reboot itself
