This bug was fixed in the package plymouth - 0.8.0~-15

plymouth (0.8.0~-15) lucid; urgency=low

  * debian/plymouth.upstart, debian/plymouth.plymouth-stop.upstart:
    - Replace the "stop on" clause in plymouth's own job with a job that
      handles stopping plymouth for the normal cases.

      For a display manager that handles the plymouth transition properly
      (gdm & ubiquity only at this point), this simply appears to be running
      until plymouth is stopped by that display manager.  This blocks plymouth
      from being stopped for other reasons, e.g. rc2 exiting.  LP: #538214.

      For other display managers, and when we reach the end of rc2 or
      other reasons, this simply asks plymouth to quit.  We never use
      --retain-splash, if the display manager can't do plymouth transitions,
      we never want to leave the VT in KD_GRAPHICS in case the display
      manager gets things wrong (hi, kdm!).  LP: #538524.
  * debian/plymouth.plymouth-splash.upstart:
    - Add LXDM.  LP: #526748

  * debian/plymouth.plymouth-splash.upstart:
    - Remove the "starting gdm" bit from the job, since that won't have any
      effect (job is already started by the time gdm is); and as a result of
      the above changes could end up with plymouth --show-splash and quit
      being called together if someone runs "start gdm" themselves.
