Description Danny Ciarniello 2006-04-20 02:04:04 EDT
Description of problem:
Logging in and out of X causes the GUI virtual console to shift from the 7th to
8th to 9th, etc, consoles.  If a user logs in and out enough times, the GUI
console can be lost since there is no way to get back to it for the 13th and
beyond consoles.

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

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in and out of X
2. Ctl-Alt-F1 to go to the first virtual text console
3. Ctl-Alt-F7 to go back to GUI console -> blank screen
4. Ctl-Alt-F8 to go to X login screen
5. Log in and out again and note that GUI console shifts to Ctl-Alt-F9
Actual results:
GUI console shifts on login/logout

Expected results:
GUI console stays put

Additional info: I am using KDE as my desktop but I don't think that is the
cause of the problem

If you're logging out, and back in and getting a new tty allocated, this is
an indication that the previous tty is not getting released.  Please log out
a few times to reproduce this, and then attach the output of:

ps ax > ps.log

Also attach your X server log and config file as individual uncompressed file
attachments, using the link below.

Thanks in advance.

This is no longer a problem.  It looks like it was fixed in one of the xorg updates.
