I just confirmed that this bug is present the default Intrepid. Here's a recipe to workaround it, as tested with a T22:

1. Install from the Alternate install CD (which avoids graphics issues)
2. On first boot, press "escape" as you briefly pass through the GRUB bootloader stage, and select "Recovery Mode". From there, select the "root shell" option.
3. Fix the xorg.conf file:

 # sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf
 scroll down to the "Device" section and add this line:
   Option "BusType" "PCI"

Control-X to save the file, and then type "exit" at the shell prompt to return the recovery console menu. You should be able now select "resume" and have the issue solved for good. (as long as the xorg.conf file isn't changed)
