ubuntu bootsplash problem

I had this problem too, but it sometimes happend and sometimes not. So 
in my case it was ntpupdate which failed to synchrinize with a 
timeserver, which is no wonder, because my PCMCIA wlan card starts up 
later during the boot process.
And because ntpupdate caused some major crashes under hoary on my 
powerbook i decided to remove it, its useless in the bootprocess in my 
case anyway, without network connection and just slows down the boot 
process and looks ugly.
So I can't say if its the problem in your case, but probably have a look 
if and which service fails, or takes too long during the boot process 
and probably you got the cause of your problem.

Hope this helps,
