Ubuntu getting unreadier and unreadier for the desktop

I’m pretty sure that isn’t a word, but anyway. Since upgrading to 13.04 yesterday, I’ve found the following bugs:

  1. Unity crashes when turning on the AV receiver. So far I’ve tried using proprietary/open source video drivers, removing all GNOME-/Ubuntu-related dotfiles and directories in ~ (like .gconf), and purging/reinstalling the ubuntu-desktop and xorg-* packages.
  2. Can’t save display settings as root.
  3. Login screen resolution not set.
  4. Still no hint as to whether I should install the fglrx or fglrx-updates driver (the latter gave me a black screen), so I guess that’s not the right one then
  5. When logging in to a virtual terminal, it says “Welcome to Ubuntu 13.04”, and a few lines later it says “New release ‘13.04’ available.” I’ve verified that /etc/apt/sources.list contains no references to older packages, and that lsb_release --all reports “Ubuntu 13.04”.
