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.
