This probably depends on the exact X driver you are using, please post
your /var/log/Xorg.0.log (or relevant excerpts).

I've seen this behavior, too, slightly earlier than that.  Drivers:



Anything that launches the X server will do this so startx/xinit works
just as well for testing.

Once the X server is killed, vt input is restored.

On one machine I posted about before, see:

(which is the machine "SKULD" in the logfiles listed above), I had to
explicitly disable "DontVTSwitch" and "DontZap" when using the vesa
driver even though they are supposed to be off by default.  That worked
until about 21 April or so (5.99.49).  After that, the problem which is
the subject of this thread appeared.
