Plymouth is fired up, but stays there forever. Switching between VTs
just give some weird combination of non-working terminal (but with
blinking cursor after the usual login message) and plymouth.
Ctrl-alt-delete succeeds though in correctly restarting the machine.

Is this a known issue?

I have been having the same issue, with the same possible work around
of hitting Ctrl-Alt-Delete in a VT.  A quick browse through bugzilla
didn't show anything, though it's quite possible I missed something.

What package should such a bug be filed against if it has not been
reported already?

I reported it initially against initscripts, but after a lot of backing out, the culprit seems to be gnome-session (although I did blame plymouth at one point).

If anyone can verify my somewhat ham-handed analysis, I'd appreciate the help.


One other poster/tester reported that he gets the bug going from runlevel 5 to runlevel 3. I was able to verify that. So I think the better characterization is that the bug appears (sometimes, argh) when exiting runlevel 5 (whether for 0, 3, or 6 seems irrelevant).
