This would happen once every 5 to 10 logons.

I took the Beta matrix, removed all the results, and just put it up
there. The beta matrix did list several items that required
retesting, if anyone can tackle those, that would be most appreciated!

You want me to reinstall with encryption support and boot into rescue

You rock. That's why Blockbuster's offering you one month of Blockbuster Total Access, No Cost.
Saturday's Rawhide NFS install was proceeding at a snail's pace.
After 6-8 hours only 2/3 of the packages had been installed
on my Intel DG33BU based system. Until lately NFS installs
on this machine had been responsive and fast (or not at all).
My wife complained that she couldn't run internet or email
apps on a compaq laptop which accesses my subnet via wifi.
I stopped the Rawhide install. Voila. All was well at Caddyshack.
As I write this, the same Rawhide is installing on an older AMD
machine without obvious problems other than the Anaconda X server
still not working.

Andrew suggested installing kernel-debuginfo. Oddly enough, there
doesn't seem to be a kernel-debuginfo package available--doing a yum
search for kernel and debug, I still couldn't find it. What am I
Running -F on /var/log/messages only showed the same information as

No RAID. Just the default LVM setup and settings which IIRC encrypts

Booting into run level 3 wasn't enough for me, but the interactive
startup was. I then fixed the problem, and ran firstart manually.
That now lets me get on with testing Rawhide...
Now where do I start with my comments and opinions?
1/ Click on _anything_, or try to do _anything_ and
the SELinux AVC denial popup appears. Arghh, I want to
throw this thing against the wall!
2/ I tried changing the size of the task bar and the
widgets are not drawn properly inside it.
3/ I can't find anything 'useful' on the menu. Note that my
frustration is starting to set in big time!
4/ I hate this new menu mechanism. Having to constantly
click to expand a menu... click to get back a level,
clock to pick the right group out of the bottom,
before you start your clicking exercise.
Click, click, click, click click! All this clicking
is going to give me RSI, and I'm going to sue somebody! :-(
5/ I can't find where I can choose the video driver for X.
Its picked VESA by default instead of the Intel driver
more apropos for this hardware, and so I'd like to change it,
but I can't find it on the menu. (Though I can run
system-config-display manually) When I did, I'm pretty
sure that it didn't work, but I don't know the details...
I'll have to do it again and record the symptoms.
6/ I tried the KDE news ticker. It now popup up as a
window rather than part of the taskbar.
Keeping things on the task bar, keeps them in a known
location and always visible. Forcing them to be another
window makes them 'yet another window that you need to
personally manage. Thats make it time consuming... that
make any work on the desktop time consuming when I create,
resize, move windows, etc.
7/ The calendar that you get when you click on the clock goes
away as soon as you click on another spot on the desktop or
a window. What happens if I want to keep it visible and
actually refer to it while I do other work in other windows...
I can't... Argh.
8/ If this is the new KDE... count me out!!! (It is a lot
more unfriendly and alot more timeconsuming.)
