Freedombox hangs during startup when installed from a fresh Debian buster 10 using Gnome desktop

Hi, I’m looking for pointers on where I can start to look to figure out what’s happening. I installed a fresh Debian 10 buster and then immediately on first login executed the DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive apt-get install freedombox. Everything goes ok and on completion I am able to login via the browser and setup the freedombox user with the first login secret. However when I reboot the machine, it hangs after the “starting Gdm display manager” message. At this point I can’t even ssh in. I’ve done this a couple of times, both on hardware and in a virtualbox, and my friend in a VMWare box. How we get it to work is to install the xfce window manager and then we don’t have any problems.

Any idea of why this is happening and where I can start to look to figure this out.
