Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Please check to see if the command 'plymouth --ping' continues to hang in a terminal. In the event that it does it would help us out if you could run it under strace e.g. 'strace plymouth --ping' so that we can determine why the process is hanging. Thanks for your assistance!
