See above.

Favorite bug:  bug# 247120 (dri2 missing)

This bug was fixed in the package xorg-server - 2:

Please confirm.

Ghost line appeared in splash (picture attached).

I've seen that too. I'll look for it again next reboot. Lets make a note to
double check on this after we upload the new usplash theme.

Lionel, Gauvain: Could either of you upload the new usplash theme? I'm not
particular familiar with it. If you could document the procedure on the wiki
somewhere, that would be great. If it is super simple, just give me a good
head kick on IRC SVP.

I hate to say this but could you try again now? I think we'll find we're
lucky and it is fixd now :-)

I can confirm this. This appears to be intentionally.

I'll seed apt-xapian-index so that we'll get this functionality since we
don't have an issue with cd space atm.

Could you please file a bug? There appears to be useful info in

This doesn't occur for me. Can you try again? :-)
