[Bug 538524] Re: boot hangs on splash screen, doesn't switch to KDM

Ok, this was a red herring because the code in the plymouth pre-stop job
*never* matches: $UPSTART_EVENTS is not set when the job is being
stopped, instead the variable set is $UPSTART_STOP_EVENTS.  So the
plymouth job itself is buggy, but that doesn't bring us any closer to
understanding this failure (and in fact, when I query
$UPSTART_STOP_EVENTS correctly, and call 'plymouth deactivate' before
calling 'plymouth quit --retain-splash', the console hangs and I have to
issue an Alt+SysRq+K to get it back - after which kdm *does* start up).
