I hope I am not intruding, I am not a developer, just a user.
I came across this message while googling for an answer.
I have same problem and I filed a bug report,

I added back xserver-xorg-video-nouveau (after removing to solve this issue) 
to try out after some upgrades. Still left unbootable, I then removed 
plymouth to test, booted okay with plymouth removed. I am on kde 4.4.1

Hope this information helps in some way.

Thanks - regards - Goh Lip
