Bug Description

My system won't boot anymore if an HDMI cable is plugged in. At some point during startup, it crashes. This started occurring 3 updates ago or so. In order to get past the crash I need to unplug the HDMI and reboot. Then when the boot sequence arrives at the login I can plug in and log in. Then it behaves normally.
