A black screen is now the default colour of the root window. I don't
know who's idea it was, but it even caught me out the first time that I
saw it. Ctrl-alt-backspace no longer works, but ctrl-alt-del should get
you out of X when you test it, or failing that you should be able to
switch back to a tty and close X with ^C.
