I've had exactly the same experience (FC3, Athlon). Unresponsive programs
after upgrade to selinux-policy-targeted. Unable to boot.

Booted with selinux=0 (yes, I know I'm supposed to use enforcing=0 but I
didn't know that at the time) and got back in. Reinstalled the old
targeted policy and it rebooted. So I went through all the steps again,
including relabelling with the new policy, to no avail.

I can only imagine the panic for someone who didn't even know about
selinux=0... let alone the *correct* way to fix it. Nice... I wonder how
many people are sitting there right now with (what they believe are)
unbootable boxes after having accepted a simple upgrade.
