Is there actually something wrong with rhgb and gdm? When rhgb is passed
to the kernel, the graphical boot progress normally but I'm getting a
blue display and a black arrow as the mouse cursor where the the gdm
login screen is usually displayed. The system seems to be frozen as I
can't switch to a text console or kill the X server with
Ctrl-Alt-Backspace. However, I can remotely access it and restart gdm by
invoking /usr/sbin/gdm-restart. The gdm login screen is then displayed
normally and I can log in a GNOME session without a problem. By
contrast, when rhgb isn't started, the gdm login screen is displayed
normally and works fine. I can't find a similar bug report for the gdm
component. This is on an Itanium workstation (IA-64 architecture). Are
you experiencing the same issue on an other system?
Long drawn out discussion on fedora-test-list, the thread starts here:

Not much in the bz, all the discussion is in the mail thread as of now.
If I have time in the AM I'll summarize.
