Text mode hits in for about a half a second every time when one logs out or shuts down the computer. The attached video is a combined two clips showing this on one of my computers. This one has slightly more text output than my other machines, but on every machine it catches attention by being ugly and I'd guess "cryptic" or suspicious for ordinary people in the otherwise smooth experience starting from the bootup ubuntu logo.

Tested on up-to-date Ubuntu 12.04 on an Intel IGD graphics netbook, Intel Sandy Bridge laptop and Radeon HD 4670 (open drivers) desktop machine. The video is from the sandy bridge one.

xorg is most certainly wrong but that what ubuntu-bug got me for reporting "screen corruption" :) Might be plymouth, might be lightdm?
