Not a big issue to me and I only installed it as I wanted a ready made cups 1.6.x install to play with avahi/zeroconf and that runs... But wondering what a quick fix is other than a text mode boot.

These days I usually use a spare PC (one of my nVidia Ions) if I want to try another OS. I use a KVM switch to connect the monitor. If the monitor is not present on boot rather than presenting me with a terminal login I could use or a graphical login with a sensible default (OpenSuse would present me with a 1024 x758), kubuntu presents me (on connecting the monitor) with a screen displaying the startup messages and in a situation where the only input it accepts is the power off switch!
