kdm console login problem

Description of problem:
This is about kdm. Doesn't have a BZ entry.
choose console login. Works fine. But, even after exiting shell, where is X? Tried Alt-F1.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
It's a bug in upstart causing this, bug #470004

Actually, this looks more related to bug 475890 to me.
Does changing /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc as suggested in:
fix your issue?
No, that didn't seem to fix it. After that change, I noticed vt1 was no longer X, X was on 7 IIRC.
After login to console, and then exit shell, I couldn't find the X server on any vt I tried.
Nothing very informative in /var/log/messages.
It really is the the upstart bug here.
ok, upststart is fixed and so is this, for the most part (for me using f13/kde-4.5.2),
Minor problem remains:
* Console login tries vt1, which is empty (is what X normally uses)
(I'm not going to worry too much about this atm, probably requires more plymouth-related love/config)
Switching to v2 (or 3 or 4 or whatever), can login, logout, then X starts back up in ~10 seconds.
ok, dropping tty1 from
in kdmrc makes the cosmetic issue go away, though I'm not scared of other side-effects. I'll test more.
