Leopard is affected as well!
Authored by: pdxguy on Apr 28, '08 07:54:33AM

Ran into the same problem under 10.5.1. Was able to boot in single-user mode and browsed the log files. Found that coreservicesd crashed right after booting, even before I got the login window. Followed the tip here about moving it, rebooted, and was good to go.

Nothing will ever be attempted, if all possible objections must first be overcome.

OS X Server 10.5.7 is affected as well!

Ran into this same problem on OS X Server 10.5.7. mdworker and coreservicesd were crashing repeatedly about 1 minute after boot and the UI became frozen. Luckily I could SSH in and move the Cache folder as said.

Also I could temporarily fix by disabling mdworker with:
sudo launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/

However that meant I couldn't use Spotlight. So yeh moving the Cache folder fixed it for me.
