Inconsistency in TTYs opened with new sessions

The warning message displayed
Description of problem:
TTYs opened by new sessions from KDE are numbered inconsistently and not according to the warning message that is displayed prior to creating one.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new session (Kickoff -> Leave -> Switch user, then choose "New Session")
2. Log out of the new session, return in the default one
3. Create a new session again.
The first created session is in TTY2, the second one in TTY7
Same result, probably TTY2 as we have the first one on TTY1
It would also be nice if the warning message (in the attachment) contained the actual terminal numbers.
