     I have a 2011 iMac with OS X 10.6.8 and it is not displaying the login screen. It POSTs, but I get the second blue screen (with the cursor) and it hangs there. I can use safe boot to login however. I have had this happen once before, but it was a third party startup item. Now, there are no login items, and the startup items folder is empty. I'm a bit stumped. Could it be a kext? A font? Some other extension? I've been poring through the console logs but have yet to come up with anything. Any help is greatly appreciated!
