if you started X via #> startx & running it as a background process then you
may not get redirected to a console when X is exited (crtl + Alt + F5 is the
X "view", to switch to other tty use a different F? key (think 1 - 6 is only
valid.. not sat at an OpenBSd box at present so not 100% sure)) hence you
end up on F5 view rather than a tty.
if that isn't whats going on then you may want to look at you you XF86Config
in /etc/X11 as one of the option "NoTrapSignals" if X does not exit
correctly (or something in X refuses to exit correctly) the console can be
left unusable (keyboard, and mouse locked and an unusable X display) but can
be killed remotely
hope that helps
