I had a problem with some broken sectors on my test partition that I
just fixed. Now it finally boots up again.
Now I can confirm that there is no usplash anymore. It shows the boot
messages and after a while just switches to the login screen. I didn't
have to install new, just updated with aptitude.

Though I will make a complete new install for the final release I
think the update would work too. The update system is smart enough to
install all the new package and kick out obsolete ones. It's probably
all the ongoing changes in the repositories that make trouble right
