Hmm. switching to virtual consoles tty2 through tty6 works for me
using the keyboard shortcuts.

in F10  runlevel 5  the X session now starts on the first virtual
terminal which is mapped to ALT-CTRL-F1 but the second virtual
terminal at ALT-CTRL-F2 should still exist as a console login.
run this command: ps aux |grep mingetty
you should see mingetty running on tty2 through tty6   by default if
you started in runlevel 5.

Each running mingetty instance should provide a login prompt
