Because I'm an idiot. I was looking at the server, not the terminal. The
inittab in question is on the terminal, stupid. (Which is probably only
broken because I've reverted to a stock kdmrc on the server, which leaves out
the necessary options to make it play nice with the terminal.)
6:23:respawn:/usr/bin/X11/X :0 vt6 -query my.server
7:23:respawn:/usr/bin/X11/X :1 vt7 -query my.server
8:23:respawn:/usr/bin/X11/X :2 vt8 -query my.server
You can leave off the -query bit.
Of course this realization does nothing to explain why there is no longer an
entry for tty7 in either of the more recently upgraded boxes' inittabs. Was
it never there to start with? Maybe. I'm stretched pretty thin lately.
I would expect the above to work if you stick it in your /etc/inittab. Adding
a new session to KDM to load KDE out of /opt is another matter i haven't
