This will be an issue with the kms kernel video driver, not with
plymouth; reassigning.

** Package changed: plymouth (Ubuntu) => linux (Ubuntu)

  Broken picture on Desktop and broken view of application windows

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  If I run Ubuntu 12.10 desktop (in liveCD mode) as is - I do not see a
  beautiful picture on my desktop, but some trash of previous boot of
  other OS.

  We tried to find workaround and investigated that if I push "ESC"
  button while boot splashscreen (turn off boot splash animation) - then
  in Unity all works fine.

  I have:
