Fedora uses a newer Xorg (1.5.0 RC1) then Ubuntu. It seems that the 
detection/scanning code was changed. For me, it crashes right behind "using 
VT number 7", where a file in /sys/bus/pci is accessed (which of course does 
not exist), so its not related to the other mentioned bugs. I'm hesitating to 
file a fedora bug report, because the default kernel works. It's more a Xorg 
bug to assume everyone has PCI ...
