Clearly report it. Otherwise there is no chance to fix it before this goes to
updates. Could you open a new bug report and add a little more information to
it (lspci -vvnn. dmesg, lsmod). Do you have linux-backports-modules enabled or
not? Please assign me to that report (stefan-bader-canonical). Package should
be linux (Ubuntu). Thanks!

Numerous people in the Ubuntu forums (myself included) reporting showstopping problems after updating to 2.6.27.13. Specifically, X fails to create a desktop, so users see nothing but a black screen after the usplash goes away. This seems to specifically affect nVidia users.

Workaround: Boot into safe mode (or older kernel), install nvidia-glx-180 and nvidia-180-kernel-source. Reboot. Go into Hardware Manager, activate nVidia 180.11 driver, and reboot into updated kernel.

Pending filing of full bug reports for these regressions, I'm marking this bug as 'verification-failed'/'regression-potential' so it's clear it shouldn't be copied to updates.
