Are you running on Debian Sid?

Did you patch your /etc/init.d/console-screen.sh ? (grep splashy

I had it patched before while developing and I never noticed this
problem. But a user pointed out that the progressbar got stuck at
about 40% and after further analysis I saw that his console-screen.sh
script ran at about that point during Splashy execution. Since we were
both using Sid, I unpatch'd my console-screen.sh and lo and behold!
Mine also stopped.

I'll try Otavio's suggestion.
