When I end the X session, there's nothing I can do anymore. Usually all
applications quit, then the X server shuts down and I'm back at the
console. When Emacs is running, all applications quit, but the X server
does not terminate. I still see my wallpaper and I can move the mouse,
that's all.
When I switch to the console manually and kill the Emacs process, the X
server instantly shuts down. If I don't it takes quite a long time (a
minute or so) for the X server to finally shut down.

What do you mean? As long as my X session is running, I can work with

The X session is started by gdm and I'm running Emacs with
