Thank you, Trent. The problem, however, isn't really the black screen
itself, but rather the fact that the mouse doesn't work until you've
loaded up a window manager. That coupled with not being able to use
Ctrl-alt-backspace and it creates the illusion that it has crashed. I
don't know if the old screen would really solve the problem, but for our
purposes it might prove less confusing.
