Have your ~/.xinitrc file do:

exec gnome-session

So gdm is using different terminal than startx's default. You should be 
able to edit gdm.conf to use different virtual console.

Or look at /etc/wscons.conf for
screen  4       -       -

The /etc/rc.d/wscons should use that at startup to enable screen 4.
