Can confirm also on my SiS630 based Gericom laptop.
Today I updated my Breezy laptop to Dapper and, surprise! It locks hard
on reboot, just while GDM is loading.
I rebooted in single user mode and discovered the presence of an irda related OOPS in my dmesg log.
That OOPS doesn't seem to have any effect at first, but when irda-utils is initialized (by "/etc/rc2.d/S20irda-utils", which happens to run while GDM is loading), the kernel freezes.
