I think it is the other way around. You are seeing the overlap because
there is a deadlock somewhere in the first attempt. The second attempt
resolves the deadlock in some manner, and finishes the initialization.
What happens if you boot to multiuser / virtual console and then run
startx? I suspect that there will be no issue in that case. If that's
true, you could try a different greeter / desktop manager to see if
that is the cause of your problem.
I took this route, and changed my display manager from GDM to LXDM
(trivial with system-switch-displaymanager).
Tested a cold start a few times and it works well.
Other good things came along for the ride:
- it offered my username in the login panel (GDM did not because my uid is 500, below
- after selecting XFCE as the desktop manager it was remembered next time
A good result all around.
