I have a different problem of same kind - my inittab is booting to 
runlevel 3, but using (tel)init does not switch me to 5 or anything else.

Even thou I have runlevel 3 systemd is writing during bootup it is 
"Starting Display Manager".

Also my network is not started up after boot with systemd (I am not using 
network manager). Any attempt to run /etc/init.d/network start says 
systemctl failed. After hand starting network is somehow started as 
dhclient is up, but systemctl status network.service says it is failing.

This is F14->F15 update as of today.
