Comment 36 for bug 1794292

The patch I described before solves the problem, but for some reason plymouth does not attach the second renderer to the keyboard. Therefore switching to text-mode by pressing escape-key does not work.
To make this work variable manager->local_console_managed must be set to false.
This causes text-displays to be initialized twice for a terminal.
So also code is added to avoid this.
The complete patch including 2 smaller corrections described before is available at attached patchGK.txt.

Note: default theme spinner is ugly and only a small time (partially) visible.
Theme ubuntu-logo is very slow and causes regularly gdm-aborts, because drmMaster is not disabled soon enough by plymouth.

Theme fade-in is a better default.
