Just to clarify, it was working in the previous snapshot you tried
right? This new one runs the X -configure command before running the
XGUI to try and get the monitor Horz / Vert refresh rates.

Can you confirm this for me?

Try this:

Boot the installed system, then choose Option 4 "Single user Mode" at
the loader splash. When you get to the shell prompt, use these commands:

# mount -o rw /
# cd /PCBSD/xorg-gui/bin
# vi rundetect.sh

or use:

# nano rundetect.sh

Then go down about a page, and look for these lines:

echo "Determining monitor refresh rate capabilities..." >/dev/console
X -configure 2>/dev/null

Then comment out the 2nd line:

echo "Determining monitor refresh rate capabilities..." >/dev/console
#X -configure 2>/dev/null

Now save the file, and type "exit" to continue with the startup. Does it
work again as it did before?
