It was a easy way for me to tell those who are new to ubuntu to get speech started from the beginning. Is this problem being worked on.

Yes, the way the live CD boots up now is slightly different, you now need to press the enter key before pressing F5. This is because a language selection list is brought up, before selecting how to boot the CD. This will likely never be accessible, and English is selected by default, so just pressing enter, then pressing F5 to set your option is the way forward. I hope to put something in the release notes for the final release about ths.
Version: GnuPG v1.4.6 (GNU/Linux)
