Thanks for the logs. I'm setting the status to 'confirmed'
These are the same symptoms as bug 571743.

I just tried to apply the same fix as for the xubuntu failure, but that apparently does not work. So this needs a bit more debugging.

ok. I'm setting importance to medium because there is an easy workaround (remove mythbuntu-desktop) but with the release of 10.04.1 this could be a showstopper for some users.

to remove mythbuntu-desktop open a terminal and run:
$ sudo apt-get remove mythbuntu-desktop

Before confirming the action, verify the list of package to be removed to ensure that is what you want to do.
