I messed around with this a little today, inspired by the news of the new kernel vt-switchless resume support. You can definitely work around this by doing:

printf "\033[0;30m" > /dev/tty7
clear > /dev/tty7

However, the real bug here is with upstart. It seems that upstart chooses to execute a few of the old init.d scripts before running the upstart formatted /etc/init/plymouth.conf. plymouth should be the first thing to run after the X server is destroyed, not some K20 scripts in /etc/rc.d
