For some systems the shutdown operation never completes when using plymouth.
The system will hang at "unmounting non-api drives"

Without plymouth things work fine

plymouth: shutdown stalls when plymouth is running during shutdown. The short term solution is to run plymouth only on startup and don't restart on shutdown.

For some reason if plymouth is killed after boot and restarted on shutdown, then shutdown is unable to complete.
I suspect it's related to being unable to unmount a FS but thats a guess.
For now if splash is used plymouth will only start on boot, and will be disabled on shutdown.
Shutdown takes less then 3 seconds in most cases, so it's an acceptable tradeoff.
