[svlug] X Sessions

So if I have a full DE running on tty7 (default start up) and I switch
to tty1, log in, and execute: $ startx -- :1, I get nothing because
there is already a session running under those credentials?

Basically I tried this twice and just got a blank screen and a locked-up
tty1 session. I Googled around and found people applying various
techniques but nothing that addressed this directly.
