Uhmmm. I can believe that. My system went from Potato/KDE/Ximian to
Woody/KDE/GNOME (I do like my G... apps) via Dist upgrade and it's
possible the config files weren't changed. (I checked my Potato
install and it's Xserver line is missing vt7). I do keep backups and
my date on Xservers.dpkg-dist (my name) is 26 Oct 2000 and it's
:0 local... line does NOT have the vt7. Another config file problem
is one that I may have caused. I don't practice safe apt-getting.
When a update comes in and debconf tells me that I'll lose my settings
and to View or replace or not ... I usually in the rush of things
usually keep my configs. Yes I should carefully review changes!

OK I shall do that. And thanks for the offer. I took a look at
/etc/alternatives and specifically at /var/lib/dpkg/alternatives
What stopped me was that there x-session-manager had two
things - kde and gnome, while x-window-manager had afterstep,
sawfish, fvwm2, twm, and wmaker. I was going to shelve this
until I had more time!
I am e-mailing you an e-mail with an attached file
.xsession-errors.hoodes_13_Dec.gz - please let me know if this
is sufficient information.

Bravo once again! Thanks. I did notice that my forementioned
Xservers.dpkg-dist file had a :0 local@tty1... (w/o vt7)

Yupp. ALT-CTRL-Fn does work with kdm ... with both the
:0 local@tty1 [...] line in Xservers and without the tty1.
