Updated bug description:

Tested again with the released 32 bit Kubuntu 16.10 ISO
(kubuntu-16.10-desktop-i386.iso from 12-Oct-2016 20:19 / md5sum: 
66a2bed9f5c807f9dff85c638896e28b)
and the behavior is still exactly the same as described above.
Both, in VirtualBox and on TravelMate 290 Hardware.


** Description changed:

  I've tested booting from the Kubuntu 16.10 beta ISO on a
  Acer Travelmate 290, 1,8GHz Pentium M, 2GB RAM, Mob. Radeon 9700 Gfx.
  
  System boots fine until the selection of "trying" or "installing" Kubuntu.
  If I select "try", system continues, finally shows the KDE login splash, then 
ends up with a black screen and visible mouse pointer.
  
  Plasma seems to be active though: Moving the Mouse to the upper left
  edge highlights the active corner. But there is no pop-up menu on right
  click.
  
  If I now press the power button, the log out dialog shows up. Confirming
  that, the log in screen is displayed.
  
  If I now login again, I end up with an empty KDE Desktop, no panel.
  After adding the default panel manually I can work as usual with the
  Live Session.
  
- Update: I could reproduce the exactly same behaviour now also within a 
VirtualBox session!

  I've used the "Ubuntu(32bit)" OS setting and 2GB of RAM for the guest.
  
  BTW: Using 4GB RAM the behaviour is a bit different:
  Instead of a fully black screen, I get a black screen with panel.
  But still no pop-up menu on right click. A click on the Panel's App launcher 
leads to a crash and restart of plasma. After that Plasma seems to work ok.
  This behaviour I also observed on real 64bit Hardware, when booting from 
32bit ISO.
