Attached bzr branch with potential solution after talking with cjwatson. Still needs review, but appears to work during testing with existing images with respun initrd.

We need a release note for Dove as current RC doesn't properly have the icon, here's a possibility:

"For users of Ubuntu Netbook on the Marvell Dove development platform, there is a known bug where the installer icon fails to show up. The installer can be started by opening the Terminal application, and typing 'ubiquity' at the prompt to start the installation."

This bug was fixed in the package casper - 1.246

casper (1.246) maverick; urgency=low

    * Added scripts/casper-bottom/07remove_oem_config
    - Added new script to remove oem-config if installed on the image on ARM,
      as it should never be installed on a non-preinstalled image. This is
      necessary because we can't exclude oem-config on the seed on a
      per-subarchitecture basis
  * scripts/casper/47une_ubiquity
    - Cause gconf changes to be made to both the 2D & 3D UNE launchers so
      ubiquity properly shows up in favorites regardless of which launcher is
      used (LP: #643791)

Since this has been fixed, it no longer needs a release note.
