This bug makes it impossible to keep a graphical login on this
machine and puts a user in an untenable position after an update..
Simply stated the update breaks the O/S (kernel) and requires a
reload if yum is used to update the kernel. I used rpm -ivh so I
could boot the old kernel and take out the update (after using yum
the first time, blindly trusting it would work correctly and
finding the system only usable in run level 3)
Inexperienced users could completely hose the system and need to
either reinstall the O/S or reinstall the release kernel...
