Upstart? Plymouth?

I'm trying to track down a Lucid AMD64 Server bug to either Upstart or 
plymouth, and realized I have no idea how the system decides what vt 
console gets focus after boot when no xserver is installed. Can anyone 
direct me to some relevant Upstart documentation?

Someone has already (incorrectly, I believe) posted this as a bug in 
gdm: bug #517842
