1. Installed an utterly minimal stretch. Base system only.

2. Installed xorg and fvwm.

3. startx on tty2. Logged in on tty3. Logged out on tty3 and was
   returned to tty3. All other terminals available.

   This answers Felix Miata's query.

4. startx on tty1. Logged in on tty2. Logged out on tty2 and was
   returned to tty1. No other terminals available. ALT+CTL+F1 sees
   X exiting.

There you are. Four straightforward steps to triage this issue.

What hohe72 observed was buggy behaviour. Nothing more; nothing less.
