Ctrl + Alt + F* doesn't do anything when X is running
The title pretty much sums up the problem, if I press Ctrl + Alt + F1 (F2, F3, etc.), while X is running, nothing happens. The only way I can switch to tty1-6 is by opening a terminal and killing X.
If I have a gnome-terminal open and press Ctrl + Alt + F1, it prints ;7P to the terminal window, P gets printed on xterm if it's open. That's the only sign the the keypresses are even being registered.
Once X is stopped I can switch between tty's without problems.
My desktop is made up of Fluxbox, kiba-dock, and xcompmgr (so transparency works), with ivman running as an automounter. Stopping any of these doesn't make any differance, likewise changing to a Gnome desktop doesn't change anything...
