  LVM encrypted, screen turned off after grub

Status in “plymouth” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Not reproducible in VM.
  Testing Ubuntu server mad64 20120727 and 20120817.1:
  Performing an installation of lvm encryption at the reboot the screen is switched off just after grub.
  To have the system working we need to remove, from the boot line, the splash entry.
  Doing so we will have the passphrase request in a black screen.
  If instead we remove the vt_handoff entry the splashscreen will be shown, but the passphrase request will appear in a bad position at the center of the screen on a background purple with Ubuntu 12.10 written.
