OK, but what's puzzling is that there's no indication whatsoever that
there's any broken Ctrl activity (neither in konsole nor in a tty),
yet the tty gets switched readily as soon as only Alt-Fx gets pressed in

IOW (unless that's wrong) you're saying that it's which has
a broken Ctrl key state (but solely when doing the Alt-Fx switch,
_not_ when doing Ctrl-L or regular letter input), not the kernel.

If so, would this problem warrant notifying upstream,
or is it likely to be fixed in newer releases?
