I have tried it with both the standard and graphical greeters. I started out with the graphical greeter and changed to standard to see if thatwould fix it, but the problem remains. For a while, I just restarted from the gdm menu because I didn't realize it would let me switch vt's. So, theoretically, this should be fixed in a much anticipated update of gdm2?

You're not the only one seeing this. It seems to be a simple fact of
the new gdm2. I haven't been able to isolate why it's happening, but
starting it from /etc/ttys doesn't help it. This may already be a known
bug with gdm. Are you running the graphical theme login, or the
standard one?
