I have a multiseat setup and where I'm experiencing lose of keystrokes in the second seat.
I'm using hotpluged (via udev) feature, what  I do noticed that if I press CRTL+ALT+F1on seat 2, seat1 goes to cli.
for now I'm putting udev aside on this matter and try to concentrate on X part, while searching the web I've found a article that mentions that such issue can happen due to the -sharevts.

I wanted to know, why multiseat setup needs to share vts? why if I take out this feature, one of the seats doesn't lights up?
