The second one sounds like a VT switch bug Keith fixed in the server
not too long ago:

The first issue sounds like a desktop problem possibly? The kernel is
emitting a hotplug event as it should when the config changes, but the
desktop software listening for it apparently does the wrong thing.
Maybe it's a gnome-display-properties bug?
