Me too :)
Provided that
 - the wanted system start to run level 3 goes to a text login in tty7
(as the first text console)
 - marking "Go to text console" in the DM login takes you to tty7
 - a x server failure at system start brings you to a text login in tty7
 - usage of SysReq key brings you to a text login in tty7

In short: all activities (wanted or forced by malfunction) to go to a
text console should take you to a text login (tty7 or higher).

Announcement should be made as early as possible to mageia-discuss and
the cauldron section in the forum.
