I just installed the alternate i386 version and played around with it a
little (in accordance with the testcase that is).
So far the only problem i encountered was the resolution set by xrandr.
In previous versions of xububtu it was set to 1600x1200 which was the
best I could ever get since we started using xrandr. My 24'' display
usually supports 1920x1200px... Even after thorough searches on the net
I never got the modeline right. After the install of the alternate i386
image the resolution was set to 1152x864 which is not bearable at all.
Apart from the resolution-issue  - which might even be due to
false/incorrect EDID-information sent by my monitor - I was able to
install several audio-players, keepassx, browse with thunar and firefox.
I got two empty ubufox pages on first use in firefox like the rest, but
thats already reported from what I read.
Sound worked out of the box, mp3's played fine in listen media player.
Compositing the desktop worked with mesa drivers.
Im always open for questions or further things/bugs I should test.
