Hiccup after UpdatePack 2013.06.06, res not listed in DPM

Using the update manager, I have updated to the latest UP. As per the instructions, because I need the nvidia kernel (nouveau has always and still freezes the system so I always have to disable it and use nvidia drivers), I ran "sudo apt-get install --reinstall nvidia-kernel-dkms" (same for ndiswrapper) before reboot.

Upon rebooting, it froze during the plymouth screen before going to log-in. Switching to failsafe mode at grub, it booted and I could log in. KDM had switched to the default solydk theme instead of the theme I was using. I started DPM to select no theme and try rebooting. DPM used to offer 1440x900, the correct resolution for my monitor. It is no longer listed. I selected the safest resolution 800x600 and no theme. It now boots normally at that configuration. How can I get the plymouth / DPM fixed?

So far, everything seems to be working fine otherwise. I'm enjoying this distro and it's been working perfectly. 8-)

Have you tried any other resolution?
