I use two Xservers on the same graphics card. The only problem I noticed
is the following. Sometimes, if I kill the first server and try to
switch to the other one, the VT for this server stays black. If I then
restart the first server, I can switch to the second one again. It's a
little strange because this occurs only sometimes, i.e. if it works the
first time I can kill and restart both servers without problems for the
whole uptime. When I reboot this may change. Maybe it depends on which
server is started first. Even more annoying, if the VT for the server
stays black, I have to play the VT switching game. This means I have to
hammer the keys for switching the VT and sooner or later, I'll be back
at a wscons terminal. The console shows the messages "usl_detachack: not
detaching" and "usl_detachtimeout" in this case. Has anyone noticed
this, too? Is it a problem with wscons or a problem of the Xserver? I
use X11R6 4.2.
