It probably doesn't work for me, since I boot my system into init 3 mode, and run X from command line.
How you load X should be irrelevant. Once you are there, you should be able to open the terminal...go su...and then simply type the command "telinit 3" and be dumped directly to runlevel 3 without any other steps.
In runlevel 3, conversely, you should be able to type "init 5" or "telinit 5" and pop back to X.
You probably now have the same problem that I do, and don't even realize it.
