3. did NOT login. switch to vc1.
4. switch back to vc 7
result: only an arrow appeared on a black screen in vc7.

It happened to me too, but I couldn't reproduce it again after I started to use
I can reproduce it. Should be fixed in firstboot-1.0.3-5. QA, please verify.
Looks like things are all taken care of in firstboot-1.0.3-5.

I think the problem is that firstboot is sometimes exiting before the X server
has finished dying off. Then when GDM tries to start it's X server, it appears
that VC7 is already in use, so it starts its server on VC8.
I've added a 1 second sleep that should give the X server time to die before
firstboot exits. It's not the cleanest way to do it, but it should work. See
if she can duplicate the problem with firstboot-1.0.4-6
