Default bare xorg black screen with mouse cursor

Hello.
I am setting up a fedora 14 installation for a kiosk.
This is starting X at boot by setting a script as a DISPLAYMANAGER to
simply change to an unproviledged user and startx with fvwm2

I am having a couple of issues.

1. If I log out (Ctr+Alt+BackSpace), X is restarted but on a
different console. At boot, it is at console 7 (i.e. to switch you use
Ctrl+Alt+F7), but after a logout, it starts at console 8, and any
subsequent restart is at console 8 too. Not sure if I missed
something.
The script is as simple as
su - unpriviledged_user -c startx


2. Through .Xclients it starts a web browser, fvwm2, xscreensaver and
a helper app for some tasks not available through the browser.
After some time of inactivity, xscreensaver kicks in, and sometime
later the screen is blank, but the system won't wake up except for the
mouse pointer, so it's the mouse pointer on a blank screen.
I think I may have missing a service or that some configuration for X
could help avoid this. I have not been able to fix it by killing any
process or going back through the consoles. I have not come to a
solution through google searches or by myself.

Anyone has any idea?
Any pointer is appreciated

Thank you.

This looks like https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=503267 . I don't
know why yours starts with VT7 rather than VT1.
