I think it must be a bug.  I have had the same thing happen.  

So far, if I get into a virtual console, log in as root and do
# init 6
and login again when the login screen reappears, it boots in properly.

It didn't happen before I reinstalled.  That was on pre-release Jessie.

All less frustrating solutions gladly welcomed.
