I can confirm this "bug". After confirming settings screen goes black and 
doesn't come back. Seems it restarting X, and AFAIR this won't complete with 
the current intel driver, because it can't drop to console after X has been 
started once. Correct plz me if I'm wrong.
I've tested it with GMA 3150 (Intel Atom D525). It was RC1 or Beta, havn't 
tried RC2 with that configuration.
