Yeah, you're right. I hadn't noticed the existence of that file.
Unfortunately, the two files appear to be duplicates
# diff xorg.conf XF86Config-4
so there's no DontVTSwitch in /etc/X11/xorg.conf, either. xwininfo and
xdpyinfo don't seem to give any info that appears relevent to the problem.
I was hoping they'd show "DontVTSwitch" in their output. At least then I'd
know what was causing the problem.
This is so wierd...
Any other suggestions?
