Default Ubuntu colonel update 3.2.0.38.46 to .39.47 issues

Both of my GPU-equipped Ubuntu 12.04-LTS boxes have just been
"upgraded" from kernel 3.2.0.38.46 to 3.2.0.39.47 by the Update Manager.
Following the required restart, the systems can be politely described
as extremely unstable. For the video display, I'm using the on-board
graphics device (an Intel 915, I believe). After a short time, the display
freezes and the pointer disappears. The only option is to reboot. The
display of text entered into terminal windows is corrupted or invisible.
As they stand, the two boxes are unusable at the moment.

Has anyone experienced grief like this with the latest patch installations?
