I've just been bitten by this bug, using the Hardy Beta Kubuntu "remix" with KDE4, on an AMD64 (Turion) based laptop.
In /etc/rc2.d, I had:
s12dbus
S24hal
s13kdm

And I needed to do this to get past the problem:
   mv S24hal S13hal
   mv s13kdm s14kdm

And yes, I suggest that this bug is far worse than a priority of "Low". Yes, a workaround exists,
but shrugging off this kind of problem is sabotaging the efforts of everyone trying to improve
the usability reputation of linux.
