Not sure why but when testing:

  ./pre-inst-env guix system vm gnu/system/examples/lightweight-desktop.tmpl

(and also the normal non-lightweight desktop) I'm getting a blank screen
once gdm is supposed to start up, but the mouse can still move.  I'm
also running the intel graphics card here.

Just curious, is anyone else having this problem?

How much memory are you giving it? There might not be enough for GDM to
actually start. IIRC that command spits out a shell script in the store,
so you can run './gnu/store/really-long-path.sh -m 2G' to switch to using
2GB of RAM.
