M E, the splash screen issue is bug #564471. You can workaround this by removing the 'splash' option from GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT in /etc/default grub and running 'sudo update-grub'.

Regarding the system going to black, I have seen this on a T40 too and it is a significant regression. Can you file a new bug and reference it here? It would be great if you could provide steps to reproduce as well. Thanks!
