Cinnamon Won't Run First Try on Boot - LMDE Related


Hi all,

Cinnamon is behaving a little bit funny at the moment. When the computer starts and goes through GRUB2, it appears to boot relatively normally, except when it gets Cinnamon it sits with a black screen and the mouse. I can move the mouse so the computer hasn't crashed. If I press ctrl+alt F1 I get a terminal screen, can log in and do
Code:
service mdm stop
service mdm start
And that makes it all work normally again.

dmesg shows the following after a long period of quietness. Not sure if it's related?
Code:

Please anyone? Maybe if I stop automatic log in somehow? How might I do that? Then I know *where* it stops booting? Is there any other log I can look at?
