X.log left after wedge

Description of problem:

The system wedges completely during the startup of the X login screen.
The X server starts, there is a busy cursor (which moves normally by mouse), then the background (only) of the normal greeter box and bottom line draws, but no foreground text.  Then the system is wedged, no response of any kind.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):



How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot in runlevel 5.
2.See gdm start X, draw background of greeter box (no text).
3.See system wedge totally.
Actual results:
Complete wedge, mouse cursor freezes, no longer pingable on ethernet.

Expected results:
No wedge.
