Bug is confirmed here with Intrepid Ipex on my Sony Vaio with Nvidia and
linux kernel 2.6.26-5-generic. The following messages are displayed
during boot:

[    2.152084] uvesafb: Getting VBE info block failed (eax=0x4f00, err=-3)
[    2.152140] uvesafb: vbe_init() failed with -22
[    2.152193] uvesafb: probe of uvesafb.0 failed with error -22

Trying to manually add vga modes in /boot/grub/menu.lst (for example
vga=791) result in an entirely black screen though the whole booting
sequence. Installing or uninstalling v86d has no influence on this nasty
bug. Would be nice to have back again the possibility for slightly
larger boot display ...
