Yep,experiencing the same thing here.  Except I can get it to boot,but
it usually does it on the 2nd attempt.  Might take out rhgb and see if
that helps.

I also noticed that gdmsetup doesn't respond once logged in.  The GUI
comes up, but is unresponsive.

I also saw in my logs gdm already running to whatever is calling it.
