this seems similar to what i've been going through.  there appears to be
no interest from redhat in helping with/fixing it.  there are a number
of us caught on it, and nothing seems to be forthcoming.  see:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=169238

i think this is all the same problem.  moving back to old x releases
appears to be one of the only solutions.

i too see a flash of the gui login (gdm greeter) screen and then it
crashes.  i've done a bit of investigation, but am at a loss for where
to look further, at this point.  there appears to be something related
to gdm (and kdm based on the bug report) starting x which causes it.

my current workaround is to boot into RL 3, login, and then run startx
manually.  which, for me, works.  but it sure is a drag.
