I had noticed that too but had assumed that it was a KDE issue because my root 
X setup worked OK with the tvtwm window manager.  A test just now of tvtwm as 
a regular user, however, shows that console switching fails with tvtwm too, so 
perhaps it is a permission issue.

I'm using the same server as root and as a regular user and a grep for 
DontVTSwitch did not turn up anything in the expected config files.
