Systemd does not complete boot after yum upgrade from F13 to Rawhide

Description of problem:
Systemd does not complete boot after yum upgrade from F13 to Rawhide.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Try to boot
Boot hangs after starting all services (between last service and mingetty / X, I think). I am still trying to figure out how systemd boots, so I have not yet been able to pinpoint where in the process the system hangs.
System should boot
Adding init=/sbin/upstart results in the system booting fine.
Also, the following works:
1. Boot into single user mode
2. /etc/rc 5
I think you'll find that the post-install script of systemd-units-5-2 failed to enable the necessary services (getty, prefdm, ...) because systemctl segfaulted (bug 621200).
Use "yum history info systemd-units" to see if there was any unusual output from the scriptlet.
Confirmed as the effects of bug #621200.
