I can confirm that a gdm3 restart might lead to either one of vt
with no specific rule. I had some issues to track down which needed
several restarts and I simply tired which console was finally used. I
have not made any stats but at most times it was on vt8 but vt9 happened
as well and also I once found it back on vt7.
