I've used both of these (almost exactly anyway) and found that with the 
traditional version, command line recall using the cursor keys doesn't 
work but does with evdev. Obviously I'm talking about in a terminal in 
the desktop environment.

CTRL-ALT-F1 doesn't work with either, 'chvt #' in a terminal window does 
work though.
