Thank you, Andrey, for pointing me into right direction.
Now I have figured out that it does not hang, but stops at console login 
prompt. GUI not loads for some reason. Graphics card is ATI Radeon 9600. 
How do I inspect a boot log (if any)?

Maybe the reason of the glitch is that online updates not always go 
smoothly, especially when there was many incremental updates already for 
given system. I remember that I already had similar problem, and fresh 
install did resolve it (cannot remember OSol or OI). Maybe I will 
reinstall the whole system at next week. Though it is a production 
server, there is not much to configure. Apache, vsftpd, and content 
files. Downtime is not critical.

Though reinstall may help, it would be useful to find out what went wrong.
