OK, at the end of my %pre I do

chvt 1

and it at least goes further and says it is starting the X server

1 ... 2 ... 3 ... (etc) started successfully

But it does not switch to it.

Which just reminded me that I could just run this in text mode!   That
would probably solve the problem, but now I'm being stubborn and want
to get it going in X :-)

I'm just going to try chvt up to 10 and see if any of those works.  If
not, I'll switch to text mode.

Will report back ...
