I had this problem when I was running the nvidia kernel tainting driver
for my xserver. It only happened when the fancy graphical boot manager
was being used - it did not happen (even booting to gdm) if I turned of
the fancy graphical boot manager.

See if the same is the case for you. If yes - then I'm guessing there is
an issue with the graphical boot process and your video driver. If it's
a kernel tainting video driver, RH/Fedora will not support it (as I
found out in my bug report) - if it's an OSS video driver - then PLEASE
report the bug, so that when it is fixed, I can send the details of how
it was fixed in an OSS driver to nvidia so that maybe they can patch
their css driver.
