For example, I began this reply from the terminal, launched Fl_teachertool as root from the server and took control of the terminal. I added a few words to the reply, then launched a command line Gnome terminal. At that point, I lost keyboard input for all applications on the terminal desktop and it doesn't return when I close the Gnome terminal.

Try clicking in the login box before you start typing. I know this
sounds obvious but sometimes I forget to set the keyboard focus into
the box before I type and get what you are describing. Unlike a
regular gdm login, keyboard focus is not autmatically given to the
login box when broadcasting.
