Bug Description

Binary package hint: plymouth

plymouth package's configure script (tested with `dpkg-reconfigure plymouth') generates wrong /var/lib/plymouth/boot-duration file. It consists of 10 lines formatted:
<number>:event<digit>

Digits are from 0 to 9, and number should be a floating point number from 0 to 1 indicating progress. But, for example, on first line this number is `0,132' instead of `0.132' (notice comma/period difference). It makes some themes (if not all) miswork.

Similar file, /var/lib/plymouth/shutdown-duration, is well-formed. After changing all commas to periods, themes work right.

Anyone interested? I found that it's not connected to configure script but plymouth itself.

My boot-duration file is correctly formatted, so I think this was fixed.

Looks like a remnant of an upgrade. Mine is a clean install. As you can see above, I don't have the file
