Unable to kill X using Catalyst drivers

My problem is that once I'm in X I can't drop back to the console.  The computer starts in console and then I start X manually with "startx".  That all works but once I'm there, I can't back out.  I'm using XFCE and I've tried ctrl+alt+F2-F6.  That just leaves me with a black screen but I'm able to go back to X using ctrl+alt+F1.  I've also tried hitting the "Log Out" button and that just leaves me at a completely black screen with no way that I know of to get back to X or get to a console.  My only recourse there was to ctrl+alt+delete to reboot the system (which didn't give any output until after it rebooted).  I'm using the Catalyst 13.2 Beta drivers from catalyst-test in the AUR.  This all worked flawlessly when using the open source drivers.

Why don't you just kill the end process in .xinitrc?


I laugh, yet the joke is on me

Not sure what you mean by that.  Anyway, I narrowed the problem down to that AUR package catalyst-test.  The Catalyst 13.1 from [community] doesn't have this issue.

I'm not sure what I meant by that.  Sorry.  Reading comprehension has gone down the tubes tonight.
