[Bug 699802] Re: error:: no video mode activated

I commented on this in #51

I have two machines running 12.04 now (both with encrypted LVMs), one of
which was updated from 11.10, where I experienced this error, the other
was a fresh install. I don't get the error message anymore now, on
either machine.

I still get this blank screen (greyish now :P), but I am not sure if
that is normal or related to this issue. Because on one comp I applied
the workaround in #44, on the other I didn't, but both behave the same
