boot.iso rawhide weirdness

I've spent my day trying to sort out what the heck is going on here, but

I'll do a new build of lorax in a bit so that the nightly rawhide
compose will work tonight, but you may hit some problems.

With my locally built boot.iso I am seeing a variety of failures at
different points. There's not much point in listing them, they all seem
to amount to X, anaconda or metacity dropping dead. Sometimes with a bit
of log info and mostly without any. eg.

INFO kernel:[   68.102768] traps: anaconda[1279] trap int3 ip:7f5d79d16f10 sp:7f5d58593d90 error:0

To add to the confusion I built a boot.iso with the NetworkManager-wifi
package included. That one also fails, in a new way. tmux runs, launches
anaconda, which runs for a bit. But there is no tmux UI on tty1. I'm
baffled as to why adding that one package would cause that.

I've seen these failures with multiple boot.iso on 2 different machines
using KVM (f20 in one case and RHEL7 in the other).

So be forewarned :) And if someone can help sort out what the heck is
causing this I'd sure be grateful.
