That's how it's supposed to be at least. I've encountered a lot
screenlockers which let me switch to console anytime.

regarding the problem: That's why I leave ssh running - X locks up (or
at least takes no input) and I can restart X from remote. Let's hope
you have ssh running, too. (btw: Telnet will also do the job ^^)
