I have several scenarios that I did:
1) right after gdm starts, VT1 works fine
2) after login into gnome from gdm, VT1 doesn't work
3) right after gdm starts, VT1 works, switching back to gdm and then to VT1, doesn't work anymore
Like a site note, every restart/shutdown gets stuck somewhere, with no possibility to find out why and is not a kernel panic since caps/num lock doesn't blink.
