Looking at it again -- there is no apparent problem with using the
serial port, only an early msg in var/log/messages

Jul 21 04:07:36 localhost init: ttySx main process (33) terminated with status 1

But nothing seems to be broken

 - shutdown/reboot works correctly (and the plymouth workaround has
been removed)
 - switch to gnome / sugar works correctly
 - bash is respawned correctly if you exit

So an excellent cleanup. Thanks to James and Paul for this!

BTW, not sure what crossed my mind when I penned the announcement
email -- it's a F13 image. Alas, what a disappointment.

F14 images are pretty close however.
