Bug#523649: console-setup: vc switching not working for vt24

Package: console-setup
Version: 1.30
Severity: normal

I prefer to run X on vc24, making AltGr-F12 the hotkey combination
used to switching from console to X.  I have tried various configurations
of /etc/default/console-setup to try to regain this functionality without
success.  Please advise me how to configure console-setup to allow this
to work. 

Perhaps the answer is just to remove console-setup and use the old ways?
