Installer freezes at session startup
Status in gdm package in Ubuntu:
Status in ubiquity package in Ubuntu:
I'm trying to install from the daily Artful desktop image (20170612).
After boot, the gnome session hangs at startup, while the "zoom"
animation is being shown.

Note that the system is currently running Yakkety with no issue.
