I burned a dvd this morning and used it to install F10. The install
went fine and this
time the problem went away completely. Firstboot ran as expected. I created a
regular user account, logged in, ran updates, etc...

One has to wonder, what are the odds that two different people had
some weird dvd.
As a side note: I had created the "problem" dvd I used previously on
12/04/08 ( I dated it),
and that was a few days after the mainstream release on late November.
