SXCE B70 & Vmware?

I eagerly downloaded build 70 of SXCE last night. I've been curious to try out the new installer I've been hearing about for some time.

Good news: the install was as easy as I could have hoped. It's pretty, not ugly motif, seems to work well, didn't ask me inane questions.

Bad news: first, it was slow. 1+ hour. Second, I installed this into VMWare fusion with a 20gb disk and 1gb ram allocated. Install went fine, but now I can't actually boot the thing! I get the GRUB screen, then nothing - just a blank console with a blinking cursor. Bummer.

Edit: Rumor here is that there's a bug in SXDE, I'll post as soon as I find out if it's fixed.
