For some bizarre reason, I have this exact same problem (xdm, and other, icons showing up as "failed", then blinking as other icons get displayed but then overwritten) but only at 1400x1050 resolution.

When I rebuilt the initramfs at 1280x1024, I don't have the issue.

I also traced the progress of the startup scripts and EVERYTHING was as expected (e.g., the xdm service started last, all updates to splash helper appeared in the correct order, etc.) --- I did this by hacking the /sbin/splash-functions.sh script to echo all invocations of "splash_comm_send" and "splash_svc_update" to log files. I then looked at the log files and all services started in the correct order.

That led me to believe that the appearance of the blinking xdm / ntp / netmount / etc. icons showing up as "failed" were not caused by services started in incorrect order.

I haven't looked into why this problem only occurs at 1400x1050 resolution any further.

Reinstallation wasn't to solve this particular problem. It was to remove garbage cumulated over time. I just said that the problem is still present after the new installation! :)
