This is unknown terrority for me but I'll try to help further.

You should try to find out why plymouthd is not running, that's possibly the root cause for this problem.

Here for kernel 2.6.31.1-56.fc1 I have the following grub.conf entry:

title Fedora (2.6.31.1-56.fc12.i686.PAE)
	root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.31.1-56.fc12.i686.PAE ro root=/dev/mapper/ VolGroup-lv_root rhgb quiet
	initrd /initramfs-2.6.31.1-56.fc12.i686.PAE.img

That initramfs file contains a 10plymouth-pretrigger.sh file that seems to create basic devices and start plymouthd --attach-to-session.

Now for kernel 2.6.31-0.125.rc5.git2.fc2, grub.conf has this:

title Fedora (2.6.31-0.125.4.2.rc5.git2.fc12.i686.PAE)
        root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.31-0.125.4.2.rc5.git2.fc12.i686.PAE ro root=/dev/mapper/VolGroup-lv_root rhgb quiet
        initrd /initrd-2.6.31-0.125.4.2.rc5.git2.fc12.i686.PAE.img

The initrd file does have plymouth in it...

# find . -name '*plymouth*'
./bin/plymouthd
./bin/plymouth
./usr/share/plymouth
./usr/share/plymouth/themes/text/text.plymouth
./usr/share/plymouth/themes/default.plymouth
./usr/share/plymouth/themes/details/details.plymouth
./usr/lib/plymouth

... but it's started in a different way:

# cat init
...
daemonize --ignore-missing /bin/plymouthd
plymouth --show-splash
...

I cannot find this daemonize file anywhere in the initrd image for 2.6.31-0.125.4.2.fc5.git2. It's also not installed in my system, which if it was, wouldn't help either because it'd not be in the initrd image.

daemonize-1.5.6-2.fc12.i686 : Run a command as a Unix daemon

So my question is, how is grub.conf configured for you 2.6.31.1-56 kernel ? Is it using the newer initramfs ?
