This is a freshly installed buster on an ibm t43 laptop.

I see a similar behaviour. In my case the logged in session is killed
when I switch to a lower tty (1-6) as well.

Some non DEBUG messages from the logs:

< /var/log/lightdm/lightdm.log

Xorg.log shows the (probably unrelated) touchpad bug and next to II
messages only:

This system will be available for testing to gathering additional info
for some time. Feel free to send me pointers where to look.
