Bug#882804: cdebconf-gtk-udeb: Missing rescue mode label at start-up

With a regular mini.iso (cdebconf-gtk-udeb built against GTK+2), on the
start-up screen, the label is missing; switching to a VT and back gets
us the needed refresh and label; without the VT switch, proceeding to
the next screen is sufficient to get it as well.

With a patched mini.iso (cdebconf-gtk-udeb built against GTK+3), the
label is missing as well; the VT switch dance gets it back; but NOT
going to the next screen.
