Switch to virtual console in xorg - SOLVED

After the recent xorg upgrade, with its attendant excitement, I found I
could no longer switch to a virtual console with ctrl-alt-F1. However, I
have got it to work again by adding this line to the keyboard section:
	 Option		"Xkbdisable"	"true"

The section now reads as follows:

Section "InputDevice"
	Identifier	"Generic Keyboard"
	Driver		"keyboard"
	Option		"CoreKeyboard"
	Option		"XkbRules"	"xorg"
	Option		"XkbModel"	"pc105"
	Option		"XkbLayout"	"gb"
	Option		"XkbVariant"	"gb"
	Option		"Xkbdisable"	"true"

I hope this may be useful to anyone who has encountered the same
