I don't know when [ ;-) ] but this would be a good thing (tm).
I think it would be possible for pcvt to detect this situation and take the
appropriate actions, i.e.:
if(there is kernel type output for pcvt)
if(the current active window is an X screen)
switch kbd back from x to char mode;
switch to char mode vt0;
There seems to be no need to switch back to X, or ... ?
On the other side this would blow up pcvt even more ....
Shouldn't this knowledge be put into ddb for every driver ???
