Unfortunately, yes.

I don't think it affects all non-graphical boot users, but I don't
know how far reaching it is (because we haven't identified what
program is causing the problem yet).

I added some notes to the CommonBugs page here:


That combined with the 0-day update that users should pick up at
initial install time automatically sort of defangs this issue.

Still unfortunate that no one ran into this issue a week earlier though.
