gdm starts 6 X servers, which seems to cause login to fail

Description of problem:
Booting the test day live image (http://katzj.fedorapeople.org/rawhide-i686-20090312.0.iso) gets me to the GDM screen, but then login stops at a black screen. I switched to VT 2 to kill the X server, and noticed there were 6 running, for :0 through :5. I brought this up on IRC, and halfline suggested that I change HOSTNAME in /etc/sysconfig/network to foobar and also add that to the 127.0.0.1 entry in /etc/hosts. Doing that fixed the multiple X servers issue, and also fixed login.
He said he had checked in a fix this morning, so this report is just for reference.
