Recovery Mode starts in read-only, does not mount home folder, and hangs when trying to do something
Starting with 12.04, when I boot into Recovery Mode:
1. The file-system is read-only.
2. The home folder is not mounted (if on a separate partition).
3. Choosing to check all disks or to start in low-res graphics mode asks to mount read-write but then appears to hang; Ctrl-C is required to get back to the menu.
4. I also notice that on 11.04, Recovery Mode uses smaller text (taking advantage of the monitor's resolution), whereas 12.04 uses large text.
What should happen:
1. File-system read-write, or at least a *working* option to change to read-write.
2. The home folder is mounted.
3. Check all disks or start low-res graphics should do just that, instead of hanging.
4. The text should use the available resolution of the monitor.
It is as if the Recovery Mode has not been tested at all.
(I cannot use ubuntu-bug to report the error, as it wants a specific package, which of course does not apply here.)
System: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64-bit, fully updated.
