I had that problem back with early versions of 5.x - up to 5.3 IIRC -
except that it happened with 9 out of 10 reboots for me.
After weeks of trying to solve the problem it turned out to be the
keyboard!!1 Yes, the fscking keyboard. It's a Compaq USB and I'm
guessing that there is something non-standard about it (it won't work
when connected to a PS/2 port via an adaptor for instance).
Don't know whether this helps you.
