The DVD isn't accessed at all, or the HDD, either, when the problem
starts.  We did a mediacheck, and have never had a problem with either
the DVDs or the reader.

The graphics appear fine.  There's a perfectly rendered window with a
progress bar going back and forth, forever.  The problem seems to be
that something in Xorg gets stuck in an infinite loop and doesn't let
anything else happen, including the formatting which the window claims
is being done.
