I've been wondering about that: will it do the right thing if the system
crashes while I'm using X on the console?  I assume it has to switch to
a text-based virtual console, and then run the debugger on that?

Oh, I have no idea when using X because I don't use X daily. I guess you
need to switch to a console beforehand to see DDB on a kernel panic.

In my experience, the system automatically switches to the console before entering DDB. No manual steps required.
