GTK Ubuntu Precise packaging success

Pretty cool Darxus! Works as well on a Precise live CD (USB stick). I only
had to replace the second "apt-get upgrade" with "apt-get dist-upgrade".
Then I went to a VT and restarted lightdm with:
sudo service lightdm restart
on the same VT
Back at VT 7 unity had restarted and weston ran fine (got some errors like
"Internal error: Could not resolve keysym SunProps/SunFront/SunOpen"
though). The programs you mentioned all ran fine initially, but it all went
downhill when I tried running weston from a VT to get it in full screen
mode (yeah yeah, total hubris, I know). Now some programs start, but crash
when I mouse over them, and the more complex programs (like... anything but
calculator) don't start at all.
Would there be a way to get weston to run from a VT? That is, in full
