I tried to install 13.1 RC2 in VMware Player 6.0.1. VMware recognizes the OS on
the virtual DVD. Install begins but promptly fails with the error: "Calling the
YaST module 'inst_autoinit has failed"

I tried to list the /var/log/YaST2/y2log as directed, but the shell did not
recognize the virtual keyboard so I was stuck at the prompt with nothing to do.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Tell VMware Player to create a new VM from ISO
2. Let VMware and SuSE proceed to failure

Expected Results:
Install like 12.x did.
