Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: Inadequate logic for determining when to force the X server to run on virtual console 1. Consequence: The login screen and subsequent user sessions jumping to virtual console 7 after the initial log out. Fix: A change in logic to force virtual console 1 for the statically hardwired display. Result: Only auxillary displays needed for user switching run on virtual console 7 and later. The main login screen / user session always runs on virtual console 1.

most likely a qxl driver or server bug
Comment 3 Marc-Andre Lureau 2013-08-14 16:43:34 EDT
that's not a spice bug, the graphical console is on f7.

moving to gdm (I am not sure what component is responsible here)

if you don't do steps 4 and 5, what happens?
Comment 6 hyao@redhat.com 2014-02-10 21:38:55 EST
Without steps 4 and 5, just send key combination Ctrl+Alt+Backspace, the guest twinkles and the user login interface displays. 
Ctrl+Alt+Backspace combination restarts X server.
