Are you sure X is running on VC #7? I seem to vaguely remember a weird
situation once where I did a ctrl-alt-F7 and got a black screen, then
for whatever reason I did a ctrl-alt-F8 and Bing! there was X.

This is probably not your problem, since you mention that X is chewing
up 99% of the CPU, but I thought it might be worth mentioning.
