My guess is, that this is related to logind. In stretch, wayland and
root-less Xorg require logind to set up the devices.
As logind is killed on systemctl isolate, the vt device is not properly

Which is why I think the system should be accessible via SSH and does
not really "hang".

The journal log should provide more info though.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
