Robert, what's this init.orig????
The init process is just called init,
How many init programs do you have in /sbin ??
Is /sbin/init a symlink to /sbin/init.orig?
anyhow... moving on...
So, the reason prefdm re-spawns so fast is
because gdm starts and dies causing prefdm
to restart in order to respawn gdm.
Why is gdm dying? It is because the Intel driver
you selected in your xorg.conf has a serious bug.
Could you try to use the generic vga driver?
You do that by editing your xorg.conf and setting
the driver to vga (instead of intel).
Let us know.
