Hm, at least the wrong filessystem mode is not the problem. From your log I see
it stops when it generates the keyboard layout. You may disable this by adding the
option "-kb" to the commandline to start XWin but you will get the US layout as 

But I don't know what causes xkbcomp to hang for some users and until I can reproduce 
this I have no change to debug what is happening.
