Remove the auth pam_unix.so entry.  The gdm-autologin PAM definition
should be:

auth       required     pam_nologin.so
auth       required     pam_permit.so
account    required     pam_unix.so
session    required     pam_permit.so

As discussed in the freebsd-gnome archives.

Don't do that.  If you want to try and track down what's happening,
configure you machine for a serial console, and make sure you're set to
drop into the debugger should the system panic.  Then, when it hangs,
you should hopefully get something on the serial console.  Consult the
handbook for more info.
