Do you have the DontVTSwitch option in your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4?

,----[ man XF86Config-4 ]-
| Option "DontVTSwitch"  "boolean"
|   This disallows the use of the Ctrl+Alt+Fn sequence (where Fn refers to
|   one  of  the  numbered  function keys).   That  sequence  is  normally
|   used to switch to another "virtual terminal" on operating systems that
|   have this feature.  When this option is enabled, that key sequence has
|   no special meaning  and  is passed to clients.  Default: off
