I'd like to bring your attention to bug #439138 [1], which I think
affects a large group of people and is important to get fixed before the
final release.  The issue seems to be that on fast systems (for example
systems with an SSD in it), X is started "too early" during the boot
precess and this somehow results in the tty fd being in an error state,
which causes select() to return immediately, but there's no code in X to
recover from the error, leading to 100% CPU utilization.
