I've not followed the thread but you can always hit it with this hammer:
sudo killall gdm (or kdm or xdm, whichever you use)
and see what that gets you. Out of X, I'll bet.  Others don't agree with
that method but It Works For Me.
Then you might want to enable that well-known and so very useful but
unfortunately disabled command, Ctrl-Alt-Backspace again.  There is
bound to be someone who will tell you how.  I saw it in a .sig just
today, too.
I just don't remember whose .sig it was.
