I've installed Bodhi on 2 notebooks, a netbook, 3 desktops..

No similar issues, always "just works".

It's my favorite distro for just getting to productive mode quickly.

When it sticks, can you swap to the text mode (ctrl-alt-F8)
and see what the error is?

I just installed Fedora 18 on a junk laptop as well.
In the one or two hours of playing around, I was impressed.
