Can you provide a video so I can see that in action?
We have stuff in our plymouth script that should prevent that from
happening - on boot we set the opacity of the fine to 'current
progress * 1.2' for values of process less than 0.9 - so by the time
plymouth reaches 90% you should already have the vine at 100% - for
values above 0.9, the opacity is hard set to 100%
For shutdown we do the same in reverse, with the opacity set to 0 when
shutdown has reached 90% or higher..
If anyone else wants to have a look at this, the plymouth script can
be found on github at
E. script , I'd appreciate a fresh pair of eyes.

Today I watched awesome changes on startup and shutdown. I think it is now
wide compatible on different machines.
I would just want to suggest a small change on Logout. Is it possible to
move Geeko downward, just a little bit to keep it aligned with "Cancel"
lower horizontal line ? On url below you can watch the Geeko back is upper
the horizontal line for "Turn off Computer".
