That could be CMOS related?  IIRC, by the time the green screen is 
displayed, the hardware should be initialised and RO is about to kick 
into the configured 'language'.  Bad CMOS or drive images might cause 
RISC OS to 'hang' for a while (or indefinitely) at this point, I guess 
(although, it's been a while so my memory of RO is a but fuzzy ;)

4.02 pretty much works for me (latest, and every previous SVN that I 
could actually build ;) with dynamic-recompilation enabled.  

I say "pretty much" because although everything seems to work well, 
RPCEmu segfaults if I drag windows in a certain way (diagonally up and 
to the right over the iconbar & empty pinboard, at any 'reasonable'
