My setup *does* have extra HW.  I have an USB hub (with a keyboard and a 
mouse plugged into it) plus an USB-ethernet adapter plugged directly 
into the XO-1.5.  If I unplug either the USB Hub or the USB-ethernet 
adapter before powering up, then "pretty boot" completes normally 
(system up and running).  It is only when BOTH are plugged in to the 
XO-1.5 that the "pretty boot" stalls at the single dot.


p.s.  Reminder - non-"pretty boot" works correctly.  Pressing escape 
once the "pretty boot" has stalled does nothing.

pps.  Richard - when the "pretty boot" appears to stall, I do not think 
booting has gotten very far.  Without both USB devices plugged in, 
"pretty boot" eventually activates the camera LED (presumably while 
initializing the camera).  But when "pretty boot" stalls (with both USB 
devices plugged in), I did not see the camera LED ever being activated.
[BTW, whenever booting completes and the system is up. powerd *is* running.]
