not sure if it is related to our case...
These days "graphical boot" usually means kernel mode setting and graphical plumouth boot. AFAIK that is however only implemented for some ATI chipsets, and I doubt there is any plans to implement it for nVidia any time soon. So I don't think that is the case here.
FWIW it seems to me that a better description of your problem is that the X server 1.5.3-5 just doesn't work with 2.6.28 kernels.
