Notice: Do we have a proof that by disabling acceleration, the issue goes away ? 

I remember in extremadura that by booting the system by hand into text mode
and then launching the graphical mode made it work, so i am not sure that we
have only this as issue, not sure.

If someone guides me (i haven't touched the graphical installer since
extremadura mostly), i will try to debug this issue over the WE.

(Note that maybe, if we wouldn't have gotten in kindergarten-like, motivation
killer petty disputes these past 6 month, this issue would have been solved
already :).
