I can confirm... second user's gdm login appears on vt7.

But is this actually a problem? All the UI elements for screen locking
and logging out provide a switch user option back to the first user. I
never needed to use the vt1 or vt7 short cut keys. The gui is self
consistent with regard to user switching regardless of what vts are
used.

As a graphical interface user, the only time I need to worry about
knowing about vt's is if I need to explicitly drop out of the gui.
And I only need to do that if things lock up so badly that I cant
start a terminal...but not so badly that the keyboard isn't locked up
as well.

The only reason I know the vt's are there is because I know the vt's
are there. And since I know the vt's are there.. I know to cycle
through them.
