That's what I thought and uninstalled nouveau too, refer my bug report

But there is a 'sort of' duplicate in
where this was finally sorted out as a plymouth issue.(by early march)

So I don't recommend you uninstall nouveau. I had a thread in 
kubuntu-user list too there. But it's okay to refer to above bug report.

Good luck - Goh Lip
