I have noticed this, plz correct me if I'm wrong:

werewolf:/lib/systemd/system# grep After display-manager.service
After=livesys-late.service systemd-user-sessions.service
After=getty at tty1.service plymouth-quit.service

werewolf:/lib/systemd/system# grep After plymouth-quit.service
After=rc-local.service plymouth-start.service

werewolf:/lib/systemd/system# grep After plymouth-quit-wait.service
After=rc-local.service plymouth-start.service

Should not all the chain be:

display-manager.service -> after  plymouth-quit-wait.service
plymouth-quit-wait.service -> after  plymouth-quit.service

Trying now...
