Compiz restarted (also some strange bug). Then a few seconds nothing happened. Then this bug appeared. There were errors while mounting devices (dropped to root shell, fixed fstab, Ctrl+D to retry, and the login window appeared). Other times when Compiz restarted I didn't have this bug.

This bug was fixed in the package plymouth - 0.8.2-2ubuntu29

plymouth (0.8.2-2ubuntu29) precise; urgency=low

  * debian/patches/main-Don-t-watch-for-keyboard-input-if-no-keyboard.patch:
    Cherry-pick from upstream; don't watch for keyboard input if no keyboard
    is set, as is the case when should_ignore_show_splash_calls() returns
    true, fixing an assert failure. LP: #619021.
  * debian/ubuntu-logo.png: remove in favor of the logo included in the
    ubuntu-logo theme which has the correct branding. This has no impact on
    the default user experience, but fixes the branding when using certain
    non-default themes available in the archive. (We still ship a copy in
    the main plymouth package for this reason.) LP: #667262.
  * debian/patches/tty1-after-boot.patch: Switch back to tty1 on exit if
    started with vt.handoff. Closes LP: #913731.
  * debian/plymouth-theme-{k,}ubuntu-text.{triggers,postinst}: regenerate
    our theme when /etc/lsb-release changes. LP: #957380.
