That happens to me with debian sid.  I have an i810 graphics
subsystem.  This has happened for months.

I work around it by quickly logging in as root and running
'/etc/init.d/kdm stop' immediately after switching away from
vt7.  This is only useful if I log out of my X session

Right.  It seems to be a KDM + i810 problem because, of all
my debian + KDE installations, only the one with the i810
suffers from this.
