It's a bug in upstart causing this, bug #470004

Actually, this looks more related to bug 475890 to me.
Comment 3 Kevin Kofler 2009-11-30 18:08:51 EST
Does changing /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc as suggested in:
fix your issue?
Comment 4 Neal Becker 2009-11-30 20:52:25 EST
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.
Comment 6 Rex Dieter 2010-10-20 13:28:41 EDT
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.
Comment 7 Rex Dieter 2010-10-20 13:30:59 EDT
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.
