That could be a bunch of things:
* Bad syntax in the profile file.
* Mis-match between the subdomain_parser and the kernel version: the
parser constructs data structures for the kernel, so if they don't
match, they don't load. This would be a problem if you updated
your kernel but not your parser, or vice versa.
* Lack of root priv. when you run the subdomain_parser. For obvious
reasons :-) you need root to load profiles, and you cannot load
profiles from a profile-confined process.
I'm also puzzled by "stuck in console mode." Profile loading failure
leaves you without SubDomain protection, but should not otherwise hamper
normal boot-up or starting X.

Post more detailed error messages and the relevant portions of your syslog.
