made some minor adustments (while waiting very long for the update to 
finish), like add a keyboard layout,
add, remove 1-2 applets.
None of the other fancy stuff like "disable KMS" etc.

Ubuntu Software Center ...

and ... BANG.
There is it again, that nasty screen asking me for my password, but not 
accepting it.

The welcome message displayed during the installation says:
"Ubuntu is designed to be easy."
Well, THAT is definitely not my experience!
