Several people have written saying they haven't seen this problem, so it
may be a result of how large your bootup messages are. I have a lot of
scsi devices on my machine, so my bootup info dumped to syslog is 3862
bytes and 79 lines, and this doesn't include any daemons initialized
before X starts and xconsole can be read. I definately found I was
overflowing the pipe as removing the syslog output to /dev/xconsole
cleared up all my hanging problems.
