It isn't a kernel bug - I can boot and get the gdm login in a VMware
workstation VM running intrepid i386 Ubuntu, but after I enter my
user/password, the GUI hangs with the brown screen.  I have tested
kubuntu Intrepid alpha 1 and had no issues booting or logging in to the
GUI. This suggests that there is a bug with the version of Gnome that is
packaged for intrepid alpha 1, when run in a VM.
