Booting up with the 'splash' parameter removed, so that usplash does not run, does not fix the problem.

Removing the rc2.d file so gdm does not start at bootup, and then starting it from a text console after the machine comes up does fix it.

If I change the script to just run X directly rather than through gdm then the problem still occurs, so I'm guessing this is actually an X problem.
