I just observed the following:

At a root shell prompt on ttyE2, "ktrace -di startx". In an ssh'd xterm,
"kdump -l". Once kdump has settled down, type furiously in an xterm
started by startx. Nothing appears in the kdump. Hit ctrl-C. This ends
X (xinit: unexpected signal 2), and the furiously typed characters
are sitting in the ttyE2 terminal session.

So, keyboard input seems to carry on going to the terminal startx was
started in ?!
