The VT issue only happens if you switch VTs while weston is rendering.
I was able to trigger it myself. The problem is that drmModePageFlip()
fails and we never call weston_output_finish_frame(), thus never
re-enabling input-handling. I fixed that and will send the patches
after this mail.
Btw., if you lock-up weston like this, you can still ssh into your
machine and run "sudo chvt 7" and this will work. That's the beauty of

errno/-1.. whoops, totally forgot about that. Will fix it up.

Regarding wl_event_loop.. what I need is wl_event_source_check()
without an underlying source. So maybe I can allow
wl_event_source_check() on idle sources? Currently not possible as
idle-sources and wl_event_source_check() use the same list-head.

It feels great, doesn't it? :) systemd-logind VT-handling is also
almost finished.
