They don't, they add a new GUI, if I understand your issue correctly.
So go to Ctrl+Alt+F8 for your second (new) session, or +F7 for your first (original) one.

(hrm, in KDE, theres a handy GUI right in the panel that lets you switch between
active sessions, or add new ones.  Gnome doesn't have similar?)
