Well, just to interject another data point, I appear to be having
similar issues that are intermittent and/or hardware related. Booting
Rawhide sometimes seems to result in a black screen after X should start
up (but the system is running and ssh-accessible), but sometimes seems
to work fine. Can't swear to it, but it seems to work more than it fails
on my desktop (x86-64, NVIDIA graphics) and fail more than it works on
my tablet (the fedlet, i386, Intel graphics). Haven't really been able
to spot a particular cause yet.

The dracut that was suggested to be problematic in the "Kernels
3.13.9-200.fc20.x86_64 and 3.1389-200.fc20.x86_64 hang at startup on
DELL Precision T3610" thread is present in Rawhide too, of course, which
may be somehow relevant.

I hate nebulous bugs...
