Oh, sorry, that was a typo. I meant to type Ctrl+Alt+Fn, of course.

What I have is:
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
Option "AutoAddDevices" "Off"
Option "AllowEmptyInput" "Off"
Option "XkbRules" "xorg"
Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
Option "XkbLayout" "de"
Option "DontZap" "off"
Neither switching to consoles is possible, nor terminating the X
server with Ctrl+Alt+Backspace.
