Almost never able to run in single user mode

I have an f18 vm (updated up to last week) running on a f17 host.
It starts correctly in run level 3, but if I try to run it in single user
mode this way:

- stop grub boot process
- edit kernel line
- keep off "quiet rgb" at the end
- insert " S" at the end
- press F10 to boot

it regularly arrives at this screens in sequence

Did anything change to boot in single user mode?
At the last screen I also run
cat /proc/cmdline
