I am not on Debian now - right now I am on Ubuntu and that is exactly
how it works for me - just tried it so see what would happen.|

My desktop is gnome & my desktop manager is gdm. When i don't X server, it means i work with just console, i can switch to other consoles(with CTRL+ALT+F1...F7) But when i start gdm it means my X is up, i can't switch to other consoles.By default  things work like this: * If you are on X you can switch to say tty1 by pressing "CTRL+ALT+F1". * If you are on tty1 you can switch to tty2 by pressing "ALT+F2". * If you are on tty2 you can switch back to X by pressing "ALT+F7". I am stating this because your description was not clear enough for me. So, doesn't it work like this on your computer?Not on mine: CTRL-ALt Fx switches to Fx console regardeless from where you start.>From X: CTRL-ALT-F1 takes you to console. From there: ALT-F7 takes you back to X. Yes? At console, you can cycle through consoles with ALT-Fx, F7 == X. Yes?
