It isn't actually hung - the last init script has run, there is no X in those 
images to start, so you are just seeing the last console output. I don't know 
if this is intentional, but it may be part of a cleanup in preparation for 
Milestone 5. It is a nightly build from the unstable branch after all ;0)

Use the Milestone 4.1 image for something known to mostly work. Nightly builds 
are pot luck - some are rather good, but not all.
