funny... I also just checked out of curiosity on my 3-day old updated
squeeze system and indeed ctrl-alt-f1 does not work! With f2 instead, it
works giving me the second tty. After turning to tty mode, ctrl-alt-f1
works though. Hmmm, why all that?

[I don't have time to open a new thread, but I am also disappointed that
the upgrade two days ago breaks X by removing this
xserver-xorg-video-all package... :-( ]
