This isn't a fix, but a possible work-around: I noted that after switching to
VT1 (CTRL-ALT-F1) I was able to get the VTs to work by holding down the left
ALT key & the right-arrow and let the windows cycle past for a bit. When I
stopped, I had my VTs back. That only happened a time, or two, after an
upgrade, as I recall.
Perhaps someone else will have a better answer. :-)
