Well, to me, it does indeed appear to be a GDM bug: I can not reproduce
this permanent VT allocation with either KDM, XDM or startx. The issue
does only show up with GDM. And it does never show up when starting GDM
the first time after boot, GDM needs to be stopped and started again for
the issue to show up here on my systems.

I can reproduce this on Intel graphics (KMS) and VIA Chrome graphics (no
KMS, afaik).
