I'm out of ideas here, since the setup works for me. Maybe one
possibility: Is Ctrl-Alt-F<x> already assigned as a shortcut for
some other command ?
Otherwise, I can only recommend to check again if all vt<x> and
console SMF processes are up and clean. Sometimes a X11/gdm session
is spawned to vt8 (e.g., when you are switching user, or a previous
gdm not halted cleanly blocks a socket).
