Black screen with 'X' cursor during install

Bug Description

 affects ubuntu/ubiquity

ubiquity-frontend-kde version 1.99.6

During the system install / disk partitioning / intallation complete part of the
OEM install, the user has a black background with an old-style 'X' cursor.

It may be that OEM installers don't need anything flashy, but it would still be
nice to at least maintain the same cursor (KDE (oxygen I believe) mouse arrow)
during those steps. Having a nice background instead of a black screen would be
a plus.

In another bug I have read that there is actual code that prevents ui displaying for OEM or somesuch. Indeed IMHO a progress indication would be handy. Let's see what maco thinks.

Also mind bug #414819

I just did an oem install with 12.04 and I had a nice GUI the entire way through. Does anyone know if this was an issue when Ryan filed the bug that was fixed? I am still combing through bzr commits and other bug reports to try and figure this whole thing out. Thanks!

I want to also note I didn't experience this with 10.04.4 LTS, 11.10, as well as 12.04 installs today.
