Well, each tty login creates a new session (at least this seems to be
the case with upstart on Fedora 13), so there may be more than just one
session. Also, there will always be one active session at best and this
should be the one you're looking at with your eyes when you type in
"ck-list-sessions". E.g. when you are in Xfce on tty7 and you open a
terminal and type in "ck-list-sessions", the session with
"display-device = '/dev/tty7' should have "active = TRUE" while all
others should be inactive. So 'active' is not a permanent state, it
changes when switching between the TTYs.

Yes. The question is how scripts (e.g. the ones on Debian) decide when
to open a new ConsoleKit session that is set up to work with XOrg/Xfce.
Can you find out what the conditions are or what is done to set up
ConsoleKit when calling "startx"?
