Issues for me as well doing this CR upgrade yesterday.

Two particularly upsetting though I have not investigated yet:

* the normal boot menu doesn't appear. The back up kernels and setup may 
have actually been removed. I need to look into this.

* My console font is now HUGE!

Likely due to a bad X server init which set display at like 640 x 360 or 

Gnome desktop.

Maybe more to come as I look into this a bit more today.
