Are you sure it's actually hanging? I thought it was when it sat at 'starting 
fso-gpsd....[ok]' or some similar line, so I started disabling init scripts. 
In the process I discovered the lack of X, and that I could ssh into it, but 
by that time I had removed the gpsd and fso-gpsd init scripts from /etc/rc5.d 
so I can't be sure that didn't have an effect.
