Fingers crossed, this ought to be the final RC. It should not behave
much different to RC2 at all, but it'd be good to re-do as many tests as
possible just to give us lots of safety. We have until Thursday to do
the testing.

One area of small concern that remains is graphical mode grub2. Can
people who have problems with this - where their screen just displays
garbage at the bootloader stage, because grub2 picks an incorrect
display mode - please note this on the list? We'd like to get some data
on how common this problem is.
