Nope, that, too, is a symptom :) The problem is that it keeps changing.
Depending on which version you're running, I believe there are four
'Ubuntu' ways to configure what happens on boot. 

There is, somewhere, a cheatseet of each of them, detailing which
versions are to be done in which way, but I can't find it at the
minute. It really should be a page on at least one of the official
Ubuntu documentation places.
