With GDM at least, the SAK kills the child gdm process on the terminal, but not the parent daemon, which then spawns a new child that starts X. I tested this yesterday, as I needed to restart X to get back the 1.5GB of RAM mozilla had leaked into it. Keyboard-wise X should be using the same translation as the VT thanks to input-hotplug, not that there's a getty on that VT.
