X server doesn't start without CTRL-ALT-F2

The configuration we have is an IBM box running RedHat Enterprise Linux with a custom X-server based on X11R6. We have it configured to start the X server on a reboot. However, sometimes, the X-server doesn't start, and you're simply left with a blank console. Hitting CTRL-ALT-F2 moves to the console that the server is on, and the server finally starts. Has anyone seen that behavior before? It seems like the X-server isn't switching to the console for some reason, and it seems like that could reasonably happen, but I've never seen that on any version of Linux I've ever used before. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
