It turns out that the actual problem is as follows.

Computer boots up with vga console.

X starts on vga.

Switching back to terminal puts text console on dvi.

My xorg.conf may be completely insane as regards the two methods of
output.  During the process of configuration I fought tooth and nail to
get DVI to work at all.  All of the relevant options are essentially
undocumented.  Some have "documentation" which only speaks in terms of
very hardware specific lingo.

Attaching for the sake of documentation, despite that this is some sort
of aggrieved pilot error.
