pefs + switch to virtual terminal closes homedir decryption

When I switch to a virtual terminal via Ctrl+Alt+Fx, log in, do stuff, log out, and switch back to X Server, I have to pefs addkey to decrypt my homedir again. If there is some easy way to check for still active user sessions before delkey'ing, that'd be great.
Thank you.

This is a bug in PEFS at the moment. It does not currently keep track of how many active login sessions there are for a single user, hence it locking down the home directory once a single one of those sessions gets shutdown.

I would send an email to the maintainer of the port[1] and ask when/if this bug is going to get resolved.
