For curisosity's sake, do you use RHGB? And if you do, but boot up
without it for a change, does this still happen? I notice that RHGB
starts up on a different terminal screen than you get from ALT F7.
Perhaps it hasn't fully let go.

What is RHGB? I only started F8 normally and when thek login screen came up then I input my regular user account into desktop (Which is X window 0 and mapped with F7 key- I assumed), then from there I open a terminal and su - root, then from there I startx --:1 to open an additional x session. The result is F7 key works with first X window session (Regular user account login when I started F8), and only F9 (not any other F key) can switch me into the added X window session (Which was created by root. suppose I could be switching 2 different X window session by Ctrl+Alt+ F7/F8 but now F7/F9 instead, everything works fine except the F key sequence issue. Throughout I never intended to start additional program manually. And if by any chance I start something unintentionally (such as RHGB), how can I know and how to get rid of it?
