  [Test Case]

  [Regression Potential]

  [Original Report]
  Since the Karmic transition away from init.d scripts to upstart services has started, the font is no longer set at bootup. This results in unreadable user prompts, whenever applications output non-ascii characters to screen and it also affects graphic box characters used by ncurses, such as for debconf dialogs.
