Bug Description

After upgrade from 8.10 to 9.04, the system reboots, and I see the logon field for a second or less, immediately followed by a messagebox (with icon: red circle, white horizontal bar), saying 'Aanmelding mislukt' (Dutch), which means 'logon/login failed'. Upon Enter or Esc or Alt+o it immediately reappears; no chance to bring the options list up with Alt+t. On the 8.10 system, the logon/login screen was automatically skipped.
Please note: this is on an Acer Aspire One. On my dual boot desktop, I followed the same procedure without any problems.
