For some reason bootups on different boards used different numbers of VTs. That may have been because the version of PiBox on each board was different. I'm not sure about that.

But to address the possibility of different VTs being used for the VT-switch required to return to X from omxplayer, the videofe config file should support a vt field and that should be used when setting which vt X.org is running on.

My galileo repo has a fix for this already but it's not checked in or pushed upstream.
