question arises if this is indeed a flicker/black screen, as that
there is a mouse pointer visible which indicates that KDM is loading.

Hmm, did you test on "real" hardware ? To get a smooth transition, there
is some patches needed in Xorg driver. I know we have them for Intel,
Radeon and nouveau but I don't think we have similar stuff for vesa nor
virtualbox driver (but I might be wrong).

I am always testing Plymouth on real hardware.
I am using an older nVIDIA GeForce 8600 GTS graphics card.

The default installation of Plymouth with Beta 1 produced nothing but a black screen up until the kdm theme appeared.
