Well, until the sugar guys fix:
then it will always seem like the F9 builds freeze with pretty boot. =(

But I don't really know what to make of the rest of your problem report.
If you could carefully boot the latest joyride with pretty boot
disabled (if you forget to press 'check' at boot you can also just
switch to the console before the clock animation is complete) and tell
us exactly what the last message is -- after anacron, X is supposed to
start, and currently sugar takes a *long* time to start up fully.
Assuming X is starting, what's the last screen you see look like?
