  can't install xubuntu 13.04 video bug

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I became a "full time" convert with Xubuntu 12.10. I had used other
  versions of Ubuntu/Kubuntu for several years intermittently. So, I was
  anxious to install this upgrade on a Dell Inspiron 5150. It uses
  1280X1024 @ 59.9 Hz. It can be set for several others. They all seem
  to use 'fractional' sync frequencies. The upgrade apparently uses
  different resolutions and 60 Hz. Whether or not that is the specific
  issue, the new install breaks the video sync into totally unreadable
  flashes and sweeps. I can't seem to get a usable/tailorable install
  because of this. Tried several downloads and burns. Anyway, I've done
  it with other levels and versions and they work. Hopefully there is a
  quick remedty for this. I know several institutions (mainly hospitals)
  with a slug of these devices.  Seems to me a simple install fix would
  be the old 640X480 during install and let me tailor the final video
  parameters. Anyway, I can see this being a negative impact to the new
  release and thank-you for any assistance you can provide.
